How are you using AlchemyAPI and Watson services to build smart apps?

If you are creating smart apps using language, vision, speech and/or data APIs from AlchemyAPI and IBM Watson, we want to hear from you.

For example, James Stout is empowering EPiServer customers to make better decisions. Inder Singh and @SerialHackers are changing the way consumers discover and buy products. Matthieu Varagnat is helping people around the world stay smart through his app, which understands the article topics someone is searching for and then locates relevant content from other sources to help explore further. 

Share your story to inspire other developers like James, Inder, and Matthieu have done.

Tell us your use-case for a chance to:

  • Be featured on the AlchemyAPI and Watson blog

If you’ve been to see a doctor in the last few years, you’ve probably had this experience: at some point, the doctor will ask a series of questions. And instead of on you, all attention is on the computer screen. The space between the questions is filled only with the click of the mouse and the clack of the keyboard.

At 4:30 A.M. on Sunday, September 20th, I was sitting in a massive industrial building on San Francisco’s Pier 70. It wasn’t obvious in the dark, but many of the windows were broken or missing panes. To get to my seat, I had to step over dozens of bodies wrapped tightly in their sleeping bags. Next to me was a young man, 22 or 23, smiling maniacally and chattering about his databases, the glow of a laptop screen lighting his face from below.
