See my latest blog post on developerWorks. The topic is how to ‘Create a natural language question answering system with IBM Watson on Bluemix’. I co-wrote the article with Swami Chandrasekaran. It is incredibly cool stuff. I hope you enjoy!
Here is a brief intro to wet your appetite:
Cognition is in virtually everything that humans do, such as language understanding, perception, judgment, motor skills, learning, spatial processing and social behavior. Increasingly, we expect the machines that we use to exhibit the same cognitive behavior. IBM Watson represents a first step into cognitive systems, a new era of computing. In addition to using programmatic computing, Watson has three capabilities that make it truly unique:
- Natural language processing
- Hypothesis generation and evaluation
- Dynamic learning
