Machine learning with CloudCoins - IBM Developer

#artificialintelligence

A few months ago I wrote about how we built our wellness app experiment called "Kubecoin". It's a side project, a type of hobby app that we built to take to developer events, to challenge participants to walk more, and to offer an immersive taste of IBM Cloud technology. We updated the app, and renamed it CloudCoins (because it is built on more technology than just Kubernetes) and we're experimenting with it at the Cloud Foundry Summit Europe 2018 in Basel, Switzerland, this week. It is built for iPhone and Android. CloudCoins is a mobile app, backed by a blockchain system that anonymously converts participants' steps into a cryptocurrency, as they walk around the conference.
