Analyze notes with the AlchemyAPI service on IBM Bluemix

Sandhya Kapoor, Ruth Willenborg, and Arpitha Myla

It happens to me time and time again. I take a lot of great notes during a meeting, but to find that one note when I need it? What a chore. I scan page after page of a notebook looking for one little bit of important information. In this tutorial, the authors show you how to develop a small language processing program, add calls to APIs from AlchemyAPI, and build and deploy your project by using DevOps Services for IBM Bluemix. Now you can digitize your old notebook pages, then in real time convert the data to fully editable, searchable text. You're on your way to finding the information you're looking for.
