Cognitive Computing with IBM Watson

By: Rob High, Tanmay Bakshi

Overview of this book

Cognitive computing is rapidly becoming a part of every aspect of our lives through data science, machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI). It allows computing systems to learn and keep on improving as the amount of data in the system increases. This book introduces you to a whole new paradigm of computing – a paradigm that is totally different from the conventional computing of the Information Age. You will learn the concepts of ML, deep learning (DL), neural networks, and AI with the help of IBM Watson APIs. This book will help you build your own applications to understand, and solve problems, and analyze them as per your needs. You will explore various domains of cognitive computing, such as NLP, voice processing, computer vision, emotion analytics, and conversational systems. Equipped with the knowledge of machine learning concepts, how computers do their magic, and the applications of these concepts, you’ll be able to research and apply cognitive computing in your projects.

About Packt


Over the course of this book, we have exposed you to many of the services that Watson offers. We have shown you how to program the use of those services, and how to train them to adapt to your particular areas of interest. We have covered a lot of ground, but the fact is that we barely scratched the surface. In addition to the several services that we did not cover, there were also many other details about each of the services that we skipped over. Hopefully, we gave you enough to get you started on your journey and with enough references to delve even further. We encourage you to explore on your own—to try new things, to look at what we left out, and to simply experiment.

In many ways, AI is a frontier like many others that have passed before it. It will undoubtedly unleash a wave of creativity and innovation. We should expect to see any number of improvements in our lives that will increase our productivity, help harness difficult tasks, and help solve problems that we simply couldn...
