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 how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
