We invite you to get up-close and personal with IBM Watson Cognitive technologies and APIs available from IBM Cloud. This workshop will show how cognitive applications are being built today and how you can access the APIs and demos to inspire your AI development work. The attendees will learn about the APIs available for working with Watson, see live demos of the platform in action and will be able to try it out for themselves. They will learn how to use APIs to understand the tone of text using Watson Tone analyzer, build a classifier to understand the sense of a sentence using Watson Natural Language Classifier, classify images with Watson Visual Recognition, build a conversational app (chatbot) and publish it with Watson Assistant - all that by doing the hands-on labs.
