IBM Watson Discovery Fundamentals

A beginners dive into the advanced search, NLP, and AI technology of IBM Watson Discovery.

Discover the IBM Watson Discovery service. This service can be used to ingest and index data sets of all sizes. Automatically enrich your data with IBM Watson’s advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning (ML), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. Give your developers, data scientists, and business users insight into your data like Keyword Extraction, Sentiment Analysis, Concept Tagging, Category Classification, Semantic Role Extraction, Emotion Analysis, Entity Extraction, and Relation Extraction. IBM Watson Discovery can even be taught your domain-specific business language by integrating with IBM Watson Knowledge Studio (not covered in this course).
