In the past several months, searches for ‘sentiment analysis’ are averaging upwards of 5,000 per month. Its increased popularity Puzzle_Braincan be attributed to the fact that more developers are discovering the broad capabilities of the API, as well as the unique results obtained from pairing it with other cognitive services, such as Watson’s Personality Insights.
Companies and people around the world are developing game-changing solutions with applications powered by Watson and AlchemyAPI services. We recently hosted a hackathon at IBM Watson’s signature event, World of Watson, in Brooklyn, New York. Almost 170 developers water-taxied across the East River to the Duggal Greenhouse, where they were given 48 hours and full access to all Watson and AlchemyAPI services to build innovative cognitive applications.
Last week, I spent two longs days in Brooklyn with over a hundred developers. I watched as ambitious ideas brought together teams and teams pulled together incredible applications. The hurried hackers moved from bean bags to crowded tables to the stage as they refined, redefined, and designed their solutions.
With the launch of the AlchemyData News API, many of the components needed to build a complete application are now handled for you. Content procurement, natural language processing, and data storage are taken care of on our side, so you can focus your efforts on creating killer applications!
