On 28 November 2018 we had a full house of over 50 developers, startup founders, engineers and IT architects at the inaugural IBM Singapore CoDE Workshop at the IBM THINK Place.

This was championed by the Singapore Country Manager for Digital Business group, Leong Chee Wah, who shares the same developer advocacy beliefs as me.

The workshop provided them with an introduction to IBM Cloud and Watson followed by live demos and a hands-on training session on how to build a chatbot, showcasing IBM Watson Assistant and Tone Analyzer.

There was general curiosity and questions on how the Watson Assistant was different from other chatbots on the market. Hope we answered them!

#ICYMI : The IBM Watson Assistant is more than a chatbot. This API knows when to search for an answer from a knowledge base, when to ask for clarity, and when to direct you to a human. Click here to find out more about Watson Assistant.

Workshop  ended with an interactive quiz  where we awarded prizes to the attendees with the top three highest scores. I’m heartened to have received various customer accolades and look to doing another one soon!

“I gained a better understanding of how to build a chatbot (without coding) and the different factors, guidelines and considerations to designing a chatbot.”
“Very good introduction to Watson and I realise how easy it is to use Watson.”
