Wed, Feb 10th 2016 3:08a   Niklas Heidloff

A default set of pages is provided so that users can log on or change their passwords with an out of the box user interface. The pages can also be customized for your own branding and design. The default pages can be downloaded from the Single Sign On dashboard as one zip file. The zip file contains primarily HTML files and additionally some JavaScript, CSS and XML files which

There are different ways how to do authentication in Node.js applications running on Bluemix, either via Bluemix services, third party offerings, open source libraries or self written code. Below is a sample that leverages the Single Sign On service and a Mongo database to store user sessions for cloud native applications. Get the code from GitHub. The Single Sign On service supports different identity providers. For example enterprise customers typically use SAML. If customers don’t have

The AlchemyAPI service on Bluemix provides an API to access news and blog content from the last 60 days enriched with meta information like sentiments and entities identified through natural language processing. This allows, for example, to build applications focussed on trend analysis for certain topics, companies or people. The AlchemyData News API indexes 250k to 300k English language news and blog articles every day and stores the last two months. The News API uses internally several of the

The Watson Tradeoff Analytics service on Bluemix helps users to make decisions when balancing multiple conflicting goals. Below are a couple of samples which demonstrate the functionality of this service. When buying technical devices I typically compare similar devices and then decide which one to buy. To find similar devices I often use filtering mechanisms that e-commerce sites provide. In some cases these sites also support comparing items by displaying tables. But static tables are not opti

With the AlchemyAPI service on Bluemix provides multiple AlchemyLanguage APIs that offer text analysis through natural language processing. Below are some samples that show how to extract entities and concepts and how to understand sentiments. AlchemyLanguage provides 12 different APIs to analyze text. The APIs can be invoked separately or via a combined call to optimize network requests. Here is a quick sample how to invoke the service to find entities, concepts and sentiments for my last blog

Thu, Jan 28th 2016 11:50a   Niklas Heidloff
Here is a nice demo of the IBM Watson Internet of Things platform. My colleague John Cohn led the creation and Travis Siegfried is presenting it. The worker Bob, the builder, wears an intelligent helmet with an accelerometer and temperature, sound and oxygen sensors. The data is sent to the IBM IoT cloud and analyzed to observe the health of workers. Watch the one minute video for a demo. You can you find other cools demos from John on his website. I like especially the video “Innovation

With the Watson Language Translation service in Bluemix you can translate from and to English, French, Portuguese, Arabic, Spanish and Egyptian. To optimize the translations you can customize the service for your own domains. Below is a simple example. Let’s say you want to translate news about your products.

With the Watson Document Conversion service on Bluemix PDF, Word and HTML documents can be converted into HTML, plain text or JSON. The converted documents can be used as input to other Watson services like Concept Insights and Retrieve and Rank. In my concept insights sample I’ve used the service to convert the downloaded HTML files into JSON. From the JSON the title and body fields were extracted and uploaded to the concept insights service. Check out the Python script convert.py file to

Watson Concept Insights Sample for Eclipse FAQ
Mon, Jan 25th 2016 3:34a   Niklas Heidloff
My colleague Hiroaki Komine and I’ve open sourced a sample that shows how to use the Watson Concept Insights service and the Watson Document Conversion service on Bluemix to improve search results for the Eclipse FAQ. Rather than limiting findings to traditional text matching, Concept Insights explores information based on the concepts behind your input. Let’s use the Eclipse FAQ and the email client Lotus Notes as an example. Lotus Notes leverages the Rich Client Platform from Eclip
