By enrolling in this course, chances are you’ve studied artifical intelligence, built chatbots and have perhaps even used Watson Assistant along the way. But did you know that you can turbocharge your chatbot’s IQ with IBM Watson Discovery, a service designed to reveal the hidden value in your data? Discovery specializes in taking your data–structured or unstructured–and extracting from it answers and patterns. For example, if you have a large repository, the contents of which could answer customer questions, you’ve got the makings of a great FAQ chatbot. In this course, you’ll learn how to build queries in Discovery, which allows you to surface answers and patterns from large repositories of data. You’ll next learn to use Discovery to extract insights from a set of hotel reviews. Then, to make that data come to life, you’ll integrate Discovery with other Watson services to create a chatbot that can tell you about the best hotels in a certain US city. By using these Watson services, you’ll add more layers of analysis to help you find the best hotel. You’ll build your chatbot application with the following Watson services: Assistant Discovery Tone Analyzer Personality Insights By the end of this course, you will have built a fully functioning AI-powered chatbot. Moreover, you should be able to apply the services taught here to your own data sets, enabling you to create sophisticated chatbots of your own.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
