Helping developers validate skills with first global Watson Certification Program - IBM Watson

#artificialintelligence

In 2014, IBM launched the Watson Developer Cloud, making the power of cognitive computing available to developers across the world through a set of APIs on IBM's BlueMix platform. We've seen volumes of applications built by companies covering everything from personal health and fitness to travel and entertainment to financial services. It was amazing to see these early adopters jump onboard and showcase the power of cognitive computing. We want to make it even easier for developers to learn how to build and deploy cognitive applications – and even more importantly, to distinguish themselves for having developed these critical skills. That's why today, IBM is announcing a new program -- the IBM Watson Application Developer Certification -- designed to help developers all across the world build and validate their skills as well as connect with companies looking to leverage their unique talents.


IBM Watson Provides Self-Service AI for Developers

IBM Watson Provides Self-Service AI for Developers By Darryl K. Taft Posted 2016-05-07 Print In what IBM calls "self-service AI," the company enables developers to easily tap into the power of its Watson APIs to build cognitive apps. When IBM initially launched its Watson cognitive computing platform, one of the first questions on a lot folks' minds was, "When can I tap into the power of Watson?" IBM responded by opening up Watson to developers via the Watson Developer Cloud, which offers Watson services and APIs as well as useful documentation and tutorials, starter kits and access to the Watson developer community. IBM started slow and continued to evolve its Watson strategy for developers. The company started with just a few Watson partners and offered just a handful of Watson services.


Sharpen your cognitive computing skills with IBM's new artificial intelligence nanodegree program - TechCity

#artificialintelligence

Based on the increasing number of ways that artificial intelligence (AI) is finding application in – and powering industries, IBM has announced the introduction of an AI Nanodegree program that incorporates expertise from IBM Watson and covers the basics of artificial intelligence. "As artificial intelligence (AI) begins to power more technology across industries, it's been truly exciting to see what our community of developers can create with Watson. Developers are inspiring us to advance the technology that is transforming society, and they are the reason why such a wide variety of businesses are bringing cognitive solutions to market," said Rob High, IBM Fellow, Vice President & Chief Technology Officer of IBM Watson. Speaking in Las Vegas at World of Watson, High disclosed that AI is becoming more ubiquitous in the technology people use every day and he stressed the need for developers to continue to sharpen their cognitive computing skills. "They are seeking ways to gain a competitive edge in a workforce that increasingly needs professionals who understand how to build AI solutions.


Affirm Your AI Skills at Watson Developer Conference

#artificialintelligence

Earlier this year, David Kenny, from IBM Watson, took to the SDC Keynote stage to share how they've been working to help people better understand machine, and help machines better understand us. Their APKs take data patterns and turn them into algorithms allowing developers to take those algorithms and turn them into life-changing experiences. Watson developers have created really great experiences – just look back at the TechCrunch Disrupt hackathon winners. Next week, at Watson Developer Conference, hundreds of developers will join industry leading experts like Uber, Slack, Cyber Code Twins and Omni Earth, to talk about best practices in machine learning and cognitive methodology to create knowledge from both internal and external data. This is a MUST ATTEND event for anyone interested in AI.
