The first-ever Watson Hackathon unearthed future possibilities for cognitive computing and personality matching apps
IBM Watson recently hosted the first-ever Watson Hackathon in collaboration with NUI Central bringing together creatives and entrepreneurs alike to ideate around how to apply Watson’s intelligence to world problems. To provide our readers with some further inspiration as they work away on their Good Data Contest submissions, PSFK wanted to share some of the work produced in the hackathon.
The hackathon brought together UX/UI designers, developers, entrepreneurs and creatives to brainstorm and develop cognitive apps. Participants were encouraged to team up so as to create work and share experiences and ideas in the pursuit of $25,000 in total prizes. The submissions were judged on the quality of their idea, proposed business model, accessibility of harnessed data, presentation and ultimate outcome.
