Build a chatbot with IBM Watson Assistant

Engage your customers with a quick custom chatbot

Tuesday, 10 July | 9:00 – 10:00 AM

Chatbots are an essential way to help customers interact with organizations. They’re being deployed across industries to support customers and enhance commerce. They can answer questions and offer support at a moment’s notice. In this workshop, you’ll learn to quickly and easily build a working conversational chatbot using IBM Watson Assistant. With Watson, you don’t need deep technical knowledge to build a chatbot that can engage with your customers on their terms. You can have one up and running in minutes.

Create and deploy a blockchain app with the IBM Blockchain Platform

Apply a reusable solutions framework to save time and effort

Tuesday, 10 July | 10:00 – 11:00 AM
Wednesday, 11 July | 9:00 – 10:00 AM
Thursday, 12 July | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

There are common features that play key roles in many successful blockchain projects: assets, participants, ownership, registries, and more. By encapsulating these features in a reusable solutions framework, businesses could significantly save on blockchain implementations. In this interactive session, you’ll learn how the IBM Blockchain Platform, built on top of Hyperledger technologies, is helping businesses quickly create and deploy blockchain applications by providing a set of technical services that allow you to focus on the business capability being developed, rather than the low-level technical details of blockchain technology itself.


Easy IoT app development

Send and see machine data in real time

Wednesday, 11 July | 10:00 – 11:00 AM

Get started with basic IoT app development tools like Node-RED for visual programming. In this workshop, you’ll experience just how easy it is to send data to a device and immediately see changes in the device’s response. Using social sentiment for our data source offers the extra challenge of interpreting unstructured data and watching how the devices react.

AI everywhere: Build once, run anywhere, learn continuously with IBM Watson

Get a crash course in enterprise grade AI

Wednesday, 11 July | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Bring data and models together — in easier ways than ever before — to create enterprise grade AI solutions that can learn continuously with small data sets. This workshop will demystify how developers, data scientists, users, and systems come together in the ecosystem.


Regardless of whether you’re an entrepreneur, a developer, or little bit of both, the IBM booth and workshops at RISE have something for you.
