Sponsored by IBM Skills Academy
The Building Cognitive Applications with IBM Watson Services series is a seven-volume collection that introduces IBM Watson cognitive computing services. The series includes an overview of specific IBM Watson services with their associated architectures and simple code examples. Each volume describes how you can use and implement these services in your applications through practical use cases.
Volume 1: Getting Started
Introduces cognitive computing, describes the industry landscape, IBM Watson and the evolution of Watson Developer Cloud from DeepQA. This book introduces domain adaptation and the processes to adapt the various Watson services to specific domains.
Volume 2: Conversation
Describes how the Watson Conversation service can be used to create chatbots and user agents that understand natural-language input and communicate with your users simulating a real human conversation.
Volume 3: Visual Recognition
Introduces the IBM Watson Visual Recognition service. This book introduces concepts that you need to understand in order to use this Watson service and provides simple code examples to illustrate the use of the APIs.
Volume 4: Natural Language Classifier
Introduces the Watson Natural Language Classifier service. The book describes concepts that you need to understand to create, use and train the classifier. It provides examples of applications that demonstrate how to use the Watson Natural Language Classifier service in practical use cases.
Volume 5: Language Translator
