The Watson Mobile Developer Challenge

    Grand Prize Winners

    In February, the IBM Watson Mobile Developer Challenge invited teams to design mobile apps using Watson’s cognitive computing capabilities to analyze, discover insights and learn from Big Data.

    Several hundred submissions across a wide range of industries have been narrowed down to 25 finalists who will use Watson to build, train, and test their apps. After the finalists submit prototypes for judging, only five teams will present proposals to IBM. The three winners are awarded 90 days of access to the Watson APIs and consulting from IBM Interactive design services.

    Five shortlisted teams traveled to Orlando, Florida, to pitch their proposals at the IBM Innovate conference.

    At IBM Innovate, three Grand Prize winners—GenieMD, Inc., Majestyk Apps and Red Ant—were awarded access to the developer cloud and support from IBM Interactive design services, to commercialize their prototypes for the marketplace.

    See how these Grand Prize–winning teams are using Watson to build the next generation of mobile technology.
