Workshop on Watson Analytics

From:  Stan Altman, School of Public Affairs

On December 2, 2015 an IBM representative will hold a workshop on Watson Analytics for working with large structured datasets. The workshop will be held from 12 pm -2:00 pm with the exact location on campus yet to be determined.

The seating is limited to 25. If you are interested in attending the Workshop on Watson Analytics please let me know by sending an email to my assistant, Ms. Jonelle Griffen or call her at extension 6720. The Workshop is jointly sponsored by the School of Public Affairs And The Center For Teaching And Learning.



What is Watson Analytics
All-in-One Tool:
This is unlike anything out in the Academic marketplace. While it's not intended to replace deep traditional analytical tools taught in school like SPSS or SAS, it's a good way to introduce predictive analytics to students and non-analyst type students. It puts analytical skills in the hands of students beyond the traditional analytics degree programs.

With Watson Analytics, you can:

  • Use natural language processing to explore your data by choosing a question provided to you or typing one in English and getting answers.
  • Quickly assemble key insights as visualizations or infographics and turn them into powerful stories that elegantly and effectively communicate your points.
  • Explore data and insights to the maximum by getting insights into the insights and using predictive and cognitive analytics capabilities to discover the drivers that matter most and much more.
  • Analyze Twitter data to understand social sentiment and spot external trends that could affect your field.
