Let me preface this story with this warning. I AM NOT A CHEF Seriously. I have probably done more real cooking playing around with Chef Watson in the last month then I have done in years. I am good at following instructions, and searching for how to do things. So my food presentation skills suck. I know this (and more professional chefs told me to my face :). I also know without Chef Watson giving me the instructions I would be incapable of creating anything edible. So, to help out a co-worker

Chef Watson part 2. Korean BBQ Lemon Cupcakes.

So I finally got all the ingredients for my next recipe from Chef Watson. This time it was Korean BBQ Lemon Cupcakes. I didn’t have to make any modifications to the amount this time. The main ingredients in the cupcakes are. Lemon Lime Figs Chilli Oil Peanut butter I found the taste to be fantastic. They start off tasting like normal cupcakes, then you get a slight hot sensation in your mouth after eating. The chilli oil is very subtle. It does share some attributes to the bacon cookies

I finally got access to Chef Watson in work. There has been a beta running for a while, but they opened it up for IBM’ers (limited access). Playing with it for a while, it is clearly still in Beta. I found some recipes had typos in them, or incorrect terms. But the system does make it clear that the steps are suggestions and not fixed guidelines. Also for the first recipe I had to reduce the amount of ingredients by a factor of four. It said it serves 19, but even at the reduced amount I w

So I have been two months in the new role. Most of that has been educational training (Littleton, Raleigh as well as local). It appears be a continual learning process, but I am slowly starting to work on customer related stuff. So what am I doing? I work in Lab Services for Watson Engagement Advisor (WEA). WEA is a version of Watson that you teach to become a domain expert. You do this by feeding it in unstructured data and then teaching it to understand the material. Once you teach it correctl

Today is my second last day as a Support Engineer for Notes/Domino. Out of my nineteen years or so in IBM, eight of them were spent in Level 2 support. When I first entered into the role, I mistaken belief that many others do (in and out of IBM!). In that it would be a call center reading a script. I couldn’t have been more further than the truth. Apart from the massive amounts of training in several product areas, you also got trained on how to deal with people. Something you don’t
