IBM Opens APIs for Extending Watson's Cognitive Capabilities

IBM is releasing a wide set of APIs for extending the language recognition, speech and vision capabilities of Watson. The cognitive APIs will help third-party developers in creating products, services and applications embedded with Watson.

New capabilities, offered through the Watson Developer Cloud, include advanced language, speech, and vision services, and developer tools. The company said Watson has evolved from one API and a limited set of application-specific deep Q&A capabilities two years ago, to more than 25 APIs powered by over 50 technologies now. New speech capabilities include Japanese, Mandarin, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.

IBM also announced the opening a new Watson development hub in San Francisco, expanding on its NYC headquarters.
