The news is certainly making the news of late. Next in the Building with Watson technical webcast series, see how pre-enriched news content included in Watson Discovery can identify the connections between current newsmakers.
In a live webinar on February 8, Zach Walchuk, Developer Evangelist at IBM Watson, will demonstrate an application that uses Watson Discovery to analyze connections between people in the news.
