The #MOOC: Question Answering Technologies Behind IBM #Watson

The last couple of weeks I have been following this MOOC

IBM Watson Academy

And today I completed the course


This MOOC gives a good understanding of what it takes to build Watson and apply it to different domains.

From the abstraction level it lies between:

Cal Tech's learning from data course:


IBM's training for Watson Explorer Analytical Components.

The good news is, the UIMA pipeline training can (and will) pay off when you start working with Watson as a cognitive system.

The other news is that language support is still a challenge for smaller language, but than again Analytical Components supports much more languages than Watson Cloud does.

When you want to get inspired, just watch the videos in the epilogue (lecture 9).


While we wait for the official support for Dutch, we will start learning UIMA by using Analytical Components and applying it to dutch text.
