When IBM Watson defeated the two Jeopardy champions back in 2011, it opened a new era in the practical application of Artificial Intelligence technology and contributed to the growing research and interest in this field. When we include the unprecedented computing power offered by the cloud, it’s clear we are living in an exciting era for building applications.
The course will start by introducing Watson and what it can do for you. You will discover the kind of problems Watson can help with, and discover the main components/features that enable it to work. Along the way we’ll learn the core Cognitive Computing techniques, concepts, and practices that Watson adopts and makes accessible to all. After that brief start, we’ll delve into problem solving with Watson. Each section will deal with a particular kind of problem that Watson can solve, using 1 or more illustrative examples to show you how Watson can be used to solve your own business problems and build powerful intelligent systems. By the end of the course, you’ll have a clear grounding in what Watson can do and will be able to use the most popular and important features. You’ll have a good idea of the broader capabilities of Cognitive Computing, and how IBM Watson makes these capabilities accessible for all.
