Fetch is the ultimate tool for students attending lectures. The mobile app transcribes the audio of a lecture using Watson Speech to Text. The resulting transcription is analyzed using AlchemyAPI’s keyword, entity, and concept extraction endpoints. This collection of meta-data is used to find relevant supporting materials, enhancing the learning experience.
Whatson News is a financial industry tool for analyzing news related to specific firms. A user selects which companies they wish to track, and the app queries the brand new AlchemyData News service to bring back information such as sentiment, relevant news articles, and related topics. The team behind Whatson News even hosted their app on Bluemix, so you can try it out!
Debug Democracy fits into the category of applications that I wish is commercially available. The idea is this: analyze the airwaves using AlchemyAPI’s keyword extraction and face detection, looking for any signs of political mumbo-jumbo. When detected, interrupt the feed with some pleasing message that reminds people of the finer things in life. The demo is still in development, but it shows an impressive effort from a one-man team.
