Watson deploys APIs to allow developers to programmatically access the semantic content (semantic data, ontologies) it collects, and to exploit the features it provides. These APIs are meant to be the basis for the development of lightweight semantic web application that exploit online knowledge.
Watson is a gateway for the Semantic Web, which has been guided by the requirements of Semantic Web applications. It provides an efficient access point to the online ontologies and semantic data. Therefore, such a gateway plays three main roles: 1) it collects the available semantic content on the Web, 2) analyzes it to extract useful metadata and indexes, and 3) implements efficient query facilities to access the data.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
