This is my last day at IBM InterConnect 2017. The past two days I’ve attended sessions including; developer driven innovation with Watson, using cognitive services to help fight cyberbullying, and Blockchain implementations.
For me, the most valuable learnings relate to the inner workings of the Watson services platform, for example Conversation Service, Visual Recognition, Virtual Agent, Discovery Service, Knowledge Studio, Natural Language, Retrieve and Rank, and Tone Analyzer. How this all fit together, the reference model, can be explained by organizing services into:
- Foundational cognitive skills
- Higher reasoning skills
- Knowledge organization skills
… and understand how developer tooling and content tooling relate to each other. On this last day, I’m looking forward to attend the following sessions:
- Building an Integrated AI Service Desk Agent
- Roadmap for Next Generation Entrepreneurs
- Humanism of Technology
- Watson in Recruitment to Improve Candidate Quality
Below some photos to give you some idea about what it looks like during and in-between sessions!
