Watson DevCon 2016 - The Flu Fighters: Using IBM Cognitive Computing to Fight Epidemics like a Rock Star!

Presentation given by Jeff Goodhue and Dave Wakeman at Watson DevCon 2016.
Can cognitive technology really detect and track outbreaks using social media and save lives? Absolutely! The technology of Watson APIs, the Bluemix platform and IBM Operational Decision Manager can be combined into a powerful solution that uses Twitter data, natural language processing and situational awareness to detect patterns in social media to track disease and health outbreaks as they spread.

The real-time situation detection capabilities of the “Flu Fighters” solution can provide advanced warning to doctors, hospitals, clinics, pharmaceutical providers and others so that preventative measures can be taken to protect at-risk patients before the outbreak reaches their area. In this session you will learn how a prototype of such solution was developed using IBM Watson Services and IBM Bluemix.
