Watson’s New Bluemix Services – Text and Speech

I, and other members on my team, have been using IBM Bluemix to build out services, samples and demonstrations.  You might have seen those features in the Opening General Session at IBM ConnectEd and at Miguel Estrada’s presentation – AD202: Build Your Own Apps in Minutes Leveraging IBM Bluemix and IBM Connections.

As a developer, it’s super easy to add services to an existing application.  There are a few new services that came to my attention (I follow the Bluemix Blog) – the new Watson Services.  Two services in particular seemed like a good playground – Text-to-Speech and Speech-to-Text.

I see many possibilities when you start connecting user generated content (Activity Streams) with these services.  I can’t wait to start playing around with it.

FYI, the documentation is exemplary
