Share this post:

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. The application is dynamic network visualization, built using D3.js, which allows the user to dig down into people of interest.

Zach will show you how to make queries via the API and the full code recipe for the application will be available after the webinar. Follow up material includes a step-by-step tutorial blog with best practices and lessons learned. Online registration is now open!

Webinar: Network Visualizations with Watson Discovery Service

Date and time: Wednesday, February 08 at 10:00 a.m. PST.
