Wine and Dine with IBM Watson

POSTED IN: Building Bridges from R to IBM Watson

What Kind of Wine with your Dinner?

This is a VERY early prototype written in the R programming language that demonstrates IBM Watson speech to text natural language class a fire and text to speech services

The users prompted for what kind of meal they are about to eat and determines some choices for wine that may be of interest

The current prototype has a fairly small ground truth about 200 descriptors for a dozen wine types but this ground truth could be expanded to cook provide a much more sophisticated analysis and parings of tastes smells events and food types

Furthermore the system could be expanded to go beyond wine into coffee chocolate and any other things that a diner may want to make their dining experience more pleasurable one

Hi! I like to play with data, analytics and hack around with robots and gadgets in my garage. Lately I've been learning about machine learning.

About this blog

This is an informal blog that explores tools, code and tricks that group members have developed to engage IBM Watson cognitive computing services - from the R Programming Language. Packages include RCURL to access Watson APIs - for services that include Natural Language Classifier and Speech to Text. THIS IS MY PERSONAL BLOG - it does not represent the views of my employer. Code is presented as 'use at your own risk' (it has lots of bugs)
