New Watson Visual Recognition Tool

Share this post:

The custom classifiers feature of Watson Visual Recognition is one of the service’s most popular functionalities, allowing users to train Watson to recognize virtually any custom content.

Today, we’re excited to announce a new tool in beta that will enable users to create and manage their custom classifiers through a web app. By entering a Bluemix API key, users can use our GUI to seamlessly create, retrain, and delete custom classifiers associated with their API key without needing to go through the hassle of forming complex HTTP requests. Additional features of the Visual Recognition service will soon be added to Visual Recognition tool.
