development background to write some simple scripts for data analysis in Python, R, and Spark


  1. IBM Watson

    Watson an IBM brand for the next generation of cognitive computing solutions.
    Watson are trained using machine learning/Deep learning algorithms to sense, predict, infer and, in some ways, think.

    IBM Watson Data Science Experience : advanced analytics capabilities for data scientists (write code for ML/Deep learning)

    IBM Watson Analytics: removes the complexity and delivers a user friendly tools for business professional

    IBM Watson Services on BlueMix for Application Developer

    • Watson Conversation service (used to develop Help Desk Assistant chatbot)
    • Watson Visual Recognition service
    • Natural Language Classifier service (used in Healthcare questions and answers)
    • Watson Language Translator service
    • Watson Speech to Text and Text to Speech services
    • Watson Natural Language Understanding service (Sentiment and personality analysis)

    IBM Watson Explorer: an application designed for a local install, not a cloud base solution, old name was IBM Omnifind


  2. IBM Data Science Experience (DSX) platform

    IBM DSX is a powerful computational engine based on Apache Spark Executors.

    It has a strong computing capacity in the back end.

    It currently supports Python, R, and Scala.

    Using IBM DSX, you can create a Python, R, or Scala, notebook-based project and create a data connection to your data source.

    You have options to load all types of Machine Learning algorithms that are supported by runtime from KNN and RandomForest to TensorFlow.

    You can use notebook to :
    Loaded your data
    Created data sets
    Modeled, trained, and validated your data
