Come learn about TJBot, IBM Watson's first Maker Kit powered by a Raspberry Pi and how easy it is to build a Cognitive robot. We'll show how to train TJBot to listen, understand what is heard, extract intents, entities, and emotions, control a LED light and servo-powered arm, and recognize objects and colors, using six IBM Watson services: Speech to Text, Text to Speech, Conversation, Language Translator, Tone Analyzer, and Visual Recognition.
JeanCarl will also share how the open source community has taken hold of this adorable bot and some of the projects that have been built.
