The IBM Watson Retrieve and Rank Java Sample Code by IBM demonstrates how to integrate retrieve and rank services from documents. It can be targeted to users who need to find information in large product manuals, for example. The project is available at https://www.ibm.com/watson/developercloud/retrieve-rank.html
TensorFlow, Google's machine learning software library, has reached 1.0 status and now packs support for a wider selection of APIs for ingesting and analyzing Big Data. The tool's pre-1.0 life found it helping researchers, engineers, students, and others in scouring data for patterns and insight.
Google has announced the release of a beta version of the popular TensorFlow machine learning library. According to the company, "TensorFlow 2.0 focuses on simplicity and ease of use, with updates like eager execution, intuitive higher-level APIs, and flexible model building on any platform."
IBM continues to push the boundaries of human-machine interaction with its Watson, machine-learning platform. A new set up APIs allow third party software and hardware to leverage the platform. Tone Analyzer, Emotion Analysis, Visual Recognition, and Expressive TTS arrive as the new Watson APIs.
