1. Remote Beta Students Analyze Twitter Data Using Watson

    A team of students in our Remote program used Watson, IBM’s natural language processor, in concert with the Twitter API to build a library that developers can use for language analysis and translation. Personify, built by Essam Al JouboriRohan Agrawal and Phil Elauria, streamlines the process of building apps that work with Watson’s language analysis and translation abilities and Twitter’s APIs. The project immediately garnered a lot of attention, making the front page of Hacker News, and receiving over 150 stars on github.
