Watson cognitive services

IBM Watson cognitive services offer a wide variety of useful features and functions such as understanding and responding to questions or statements in natural language. However, in the labs in this course, you’ll build Swift applications that can:

  • Analyze the sentiment in text: is a given statement positive, negative, or neutral?
  • Recognize the content of images: does a particular image contain people, animals, landscapes, or something else?
  • Convert text to speech: you enter text and Watson re-creates that text into human speech.

When you build these applications, you use the IBM Watson Developer Cloud SDK for iOS. This SDK provides the resources needed to invoke Watson services on IBM Bluemix from your iOS application.
