In my last blog entry, I covered the announcement of the IBM Watson Mobile Developer Challenge. The Watson Mobile Developer Challenge is designed to catalyze mobile developers to explore the opportunity around mobile cognitive computing - bringing the power of Watson to a smartphone or other mobile device. Entrants submit proposals for mobile apps, and the finalists - to be announced at IBM Impact 2014 - will receive access to IBM Interactive Studios experts and Watson APIs in order to bring their vision to reality.

In the 30 days since the Challenge was announced, there has been tremendous interest. The IBM Watson Mobile Developer Challenge website has had over 90,000 visits, leading to over 5000 clickthroughs to submit a proposal. Because of this level of interest, submissions are still coming in - with two weeks to the (revised) deadline of April 14.

What makes a good entry for the Challenge? Here are some ideas on the WatsonDev blog:
A good interaction pattern with Watson will exploit the volume, veracity and variety of content to leverage evidence based insights with weighted confidence.  A strong use case will take advantage of deep natural language processing and benefit from a continuously learning system, while providing transparency into the source of information.  Applications can transform the user experience with contextual relevance and active dialoging.

Submissions so far have come from everywhere - all over the world, and from a range of entities - individual developers, system integrators, venture capitalists, IBMers, and even corporations. But I only recognize one name in the whole list, which means regular blog readers haven't yet jumped on this opportunity. Hope you'll take a look and brainstorm some ideas - it would be great to have some familiar faces among the finalists.
