Putting Watson to Work

Believing is seeing and seeing is believing.

-- Tom Hanks

Last week in Watson, Come Here – I Want to See You, I introduced No Jitter readers to much of the functionality delivered by IBM Watson. I explained how Watson can perform language detection, language translation, and language analysis. I also wrote of how the Watson Conversation API can be used to build bidirectional bots that accept, analyze, and appropriately respond to incoming text messages and/or Web chats.

While words are fine and dandy, I personally learn best by seeing technology in action. So, to make people like me happy, I sat down at my PC and created a video that runs Watson through the paces. I started with the raw API calls before adding them into a Python application. I then used Avaya Breeze to make artificial intelligence and natural language processing as easy as drag and drop.

Whether you are a programmer or not, there is much to be gained by seeing how Watson can be used to create powerful applications for enterprises of all shapes and sizes.
