Seminar Automatic Question Answering Using IBM Watson [SemWatson]
The seminar will focus on the IBM Watson technology that is being used to build question answering system. The Watson system is quite well known because it was the first system to beat two human experts in the American quiz show "Jeopardy!". In the seminar, we will investigate natural language processing techniques and the Watson API in particular. In order to bring this technology also into an applied context, IBM will provide us with access to an Watson Instance that can be used to build own question answering systems embedded into IBM's Bluemix Cloud Architecture. Registration for the class will occur in the first appointment.
