IBM Watson is the Artificial Intelligence platform for business. With IBM Watson, Swift developers can build apps that uncover insights, engage in new ways with users and make decisions with more confidence.

For Swift developers attending WWDC 2017, IBM’s Glenn Fisher will host multiple 45-minute hands-on workshops on Wednesday, June 7, and Thursday, June 8. These workshops will show participants how to build smarter, cognitive, apps with IBM Watson and the Watson Swift SDK. Specifically, participants will combine Speech to Text, Conversation, and Text to Speech services available with IBM Watson to build a voice-to-voice chat app.

During the workshop, participants will train an instance of Watson to respond to natural language questions. They will then experiment with the SDK and explore various components of the app using Xcode Playground, and finally combine the components into a complete end-to-end chat-bot.

A step-by-step tutorial for building this demo app is available here
