We’re happy to announce the release of a new developer journey, Create an investment management chatbot. This journey teaches developers how easy it is to integrate Watson Conversation API with a set of FinTech APIs on Bluemix. Developers can see how to provide different front-end user interfaces (for example, WebUI or Twilio SMS) to add flexibility in the way their customers interact with applications.

The financial services industry is taking advantage of digital business. More than ever, financial institutions are leveraging the internet, using mobile and technologies like artificial intelligence to scale up and get work done faster.

This developer journey includes training data that suggests there are additional opportunities to expand the application beyond the current use cases. Right now, you’ll be able to build a bot that will provide a listing of a users’s portfolio holdings and then use a scenario file to understand the impact to a portfolio based on market changes.

We look forward to seeing what you can do to expand on the base application. Think of new ways to use the bot, and contribute anything you produce. We’re hoping to see developers leverage additional financial REST calls such as Xignite and plotting APIs. Let’s roll up our sleeves and see where this journey takes us!

  1. Hi, I was able to get a version of this bot running on my machine, everything seems to work pretty well. However, being a developer and not a finance person, I have no clue as to how to come up with data for other market scenarios, similar to the S&P 5% down scenario provided. I’ve had a look at Xignite but I’m afraid it has left me clueless too. How can I go about making use of the SIA for other scenarios?
