News Analysis via AlchemyAPI for Topics, Companies and People
Wed, Feb 3rd 2016 2:10a   Niklas Heidloff
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

Samples of the Watson Tradeoff Analytics Service

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

Fun Worker Safety Demo leveraging the Watson IoT Platform
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

Customizing the Watson Language Translation Service
Thu, Jan 28th 2016 3:31a   Niklas Heidloff
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. You can use the out of the box translation capabilities based on the pre-defined news corpus for most text. However for your product names you often need to customize the service to t

Simple Sample of the Watson Document Conversion Service
Wed, Jan 27th 2016 9:33a   Niklas Heidloff
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

With the Watson Tone Analyzer service on IBM Bluemix you can discover, understand, and revise the language tones in text before you publish, send or share it. Below is a little sample how to invoke the service from WordPress via a simple Chrome extension. In the WordPress dashboard you can click the Watson icon in the Chrome toolbar. The triggered code of the extension injects some JavaScript in the page to read the content of the textarea and sends it to the extension. Next the extension open

Steering Anki Overdrive Cars via Leap Motion Gestures and Bluemix
Wed, Jan 20th 2016 9:41a   Niklas Heidloff
Here is another example how to steer Anki Overdrive cars via IBM Bluemix. In addition to a local controller, Watson speech recognition and a Kinect I’ve added gesture recognition via Leap Motion. The sample is available as open source on GitHub. The project contains sample code that shows how to send MQTT commands to IBM Bluemix when gestures are recognized via Leap Motion. Right now four gestures can be recognized: swipe left, swipe right, screen tap and circle. The best way to explain th

Steering Anki Overdrive Cars via Kinect and Bluemix
Mon, Jan 18th 2016 3:08a   Niklas Heidloff
I’ve open sourced a sample showing how to steer Anki Overdrive cars via Kinect and IBM Bluemix. The sample requires the Node.js controller and MQTT interface that I had open sourced previously. The sample is another alternative showing how to send commands to the cars in addition to Watson speech recognition. Check out the project on GitHub. The project contains sample code that shows how to send MQTT commands to IBM Bluemix when ‘buttons’ are pressed via Kinect. Buttons are pr
