What will you do with Watson? Introducing the IBM Watson Mobile Developer Challenge. Pitch us your idea for the next groundbreaking Watson-powered mobile app for a chance to join the Watson Ecosystem and receive development and design support from IBM –Turning your idea into a market-changing consumer or business app.
IBM is looking for the next groundbreaking mobile app. One that leverages the unique power of cognitive computing: natural language processing, machine learning, hypothesis generation, and evaluation – to deliver a new level of user experience… all in the palm of your hand. Do you have a great idea? Tell us what you will do with Watson.
To enter the competition, you must submit your proposal at www.ibmwatson.com before March 31st, 2014. Once you’ve submitted your proposal, a panel of judges will conduct two phases of judging. The first phase will narrow the field to 25 finalists. Those finalists will receive access to the Watson API and sandbox so they can build a prototype to be judged in the second phase. From there, the top 5 finalists will pitch their concepts to a panel of IBM judges in a live session. The judges will then determine three winners.
The IBM Watson Mobile Developer Challenge is open to organizations that have mobile developers who want to create a unique mobile app or experience that is powered by Watson. Applicants, if selected as finalists, should be prepared and equipped to develop a working prototype and pitch their concept to the IBM judges.
IBM will help three winning teams turn their prototype into a viable commercial app. Winners will join the Watson Ecosystem, and receive design and development consulting from IBM experts.
