IBM Watson is also developing technology in business advancement. It is a technology platform that uses AI, natural language processing, ML, etc. to get the best outcome. Watson is a question-answering machine that works on cognitive computing. If you want to know more about IBM Watson, its features, and how it works, visit here.
In this article, following topics are covered
- Get Started with IBM Watson
- Watson Studio
- Watson Knowledge Catalog
- Free courses and certification
- IBM Developer Skills Network-Labs
Get Started with IBM Watson
It’s quite easy to start with IBM Watson Studio. First, you have to create an IBM Cloud account and then just activate one or both IBM Watson services. IBM Watson Studio and Watson Knowledge Catalog are Watson applications. They both are parts of the IBM Cloud. Let’s understand them.
A studio which helps many of the data scientists and analysts to prepare data and build models at large scale. Watson studio is totally free to use and has flexible multicloud architecture. Watson Studio helps to solve business problems by collaboratively working with data. There are a lot of tools that help to analyze and visualize data, to ingest streaming data, or to create and train machine learning models. Here is the architecture of the Watson Studio Project.
Watson Knowledge Catalog
A catalog connects data and knowledge with the people who need to use it. Watson Knowledge Catalog is a data catalog that provides utility computing resources with little knowledge of the enterprise’s data. A data catalog can help your user easily finds, prepare, understand, and use the data they need. Watson Knowledge Catalog helps in business advancement. Here is the illustration that shows Watson’s Knowledge Catalog working.
Check how to create a catalog and find data assets.
