In the last tip, we finished looking at the Watson products (services) that you can tie into. Now it’s time to look at the APIs that IBM has for Watson and see how you can leverage them.

So far, we have seen the products that IBM Watson supports: Conversation, Discovery, Virtual Agents, and Watson Knowledge Studio. But you can do more than just use services with Watson. You can also do development, creating your own APIs based on models or frameworks that IBM supplies. That’s what we’ll look at now. As with the products, the things you develop take advantage of the DeepQA parallel architecture and Watson’s ability to handle natural language.
