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.
The series includes the following volumes:
Volume 1 Getting Started
Volume 2 Conversation
Volume 3 Visual Recognition
Volume 4 Natural Language Classifier
Volume 5 Language Translator
Volume 6 Speech to Text and Text to Speech
Volume 7 Natural Language Understanding
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced developer, this collection provides the information you need to start your research on Watson services. If your goal is to become more familiar with Watson in relation to your current environment, or if you are evaluating cognitive computing, this collection can serve as a powerful learning tool.
This IBM Redbooks® publication, Volume 2, 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. It introduces the
concepts that you need to understand in order to use the Watson
Conversation service. It provides examples of applications that
integrate the Watson Conversation service with other IBM Bluemix®
services, such as the IBM IoT Platform, Text to Speech, Speech to
Text, and Weather Company® Data, to implement practical use cases.
You can develop and deploy the sample applications by following
along in a step-by-step approach and using provided code snippets.
Alternatively, you can download an existing Git project to more
quickly deploy the application.
