    Introducing the Watson APIs

    IBM Watson is a platform of APIs that IBM has trained on immense data sets for use as a service. The Watson APIs allow you to process speech, text, and images in an easy and natural way. They also allow you to further train services with your own custom data to provide context-specific analysis. In this stage we'll get a good feel for what you can build with Watson APIs. 9 steps

    Using the Discovery Service

    The real fun and power of the Watson platform happens when we start combining multiple services together to create more context-aware and capable systems. In this stage we will setup and integrate the Discovery API, which allows us to gather insights from unstructured or loosely defined data sets. 8 steps
