Build Cool AI Technology in ~90 Minutes and Learn by Doing (No Coding!)

cd078d56

If you’re reading this, you probably know that, arguably, artificial intelligence is the most significant technological developments of our time. There will be people who are able to use AI to do incredible things and others who watch technology and the world change around them at a blistering pace without understanding fully what’s going on. If you’re someone who stays “in the know,” you need to learn about AI. We think that you can best learn by doing. Plus, it’s fun! And you’ll get some pretty amazing technology that you can use for free forever.

Create a Customizable “Smart” Twitter Bot Powered by IBM Watson Step by Step

You’ll create a Twitter bot powered by IBM’s cloud cognition technology that is able to understand which Tweets are relevant to you, filter them from all the Tweets around a topic, and present them to you through Google Sheets. We’re calling it the Prospector Bot and this bot has practical uses for businesses, personal use, non-profits, government, and more. Through completing the project, you’ll learn:

  • How to build apps (no coding required) in IBM Bluemix
  • How to train IBM Watson’s Natural Language Classifier, a Watson service built on machine learning, to curate Tweets on your behalf
  • How to use Twitter’s Advanced Search functions
  • How to use Google Sheets as an automation hub / bot headquarters

If you enjoy doing this project, please leave us a good review. We’d really appreciate it!
