While the President delivered his address to the nation, his words were recorded for the history books – and for Watson. Combining those words with the power of IBM Watson Personality Insights, one of our Watson Developer Cloud services,¬†provides¬†deeper insights into the meaning and sentiment behind the President’s words.
How did Personality Insights analyze¬†the State of the Union address?The service identifies¬†52 different characteristics taken from any text input – the more data, the more accurate the results. What the Personality Insights service is able to accomplish in a matter of minutes or seconds can take political analysts hours or days to complete.
Personally, I have used the User Modeling to analyze¬†text ranging from¬†tweets to novels. Thanks to the User Modeling service, I recently learned that the text of Moby Dick is highly sympathetic and that the first Hunger Games book has a high percentage of challenge. Analyzing an entire novel gives you the feeling of the whole story, while analyzing and comparing individual chapters lets you¬†see how a story changes and evolves. You can process even large samples of text in under 10 seconds – it’s definitely worth trying out! IBM Bluemix, which offers free trial accounts. Check out the Bluemix¬†blog post detailing how to use User Modeling template applications, known as boilerplates, to create your own State of the Union style app on Bluemix in less than 5 minutes!
