Getting an internship at IBM

I have interviewed many candidates for positions on my teams at IBM and one thing that stands out between candidates is their internships. It seems everyone graduates from great schools with double majors and near perfect GPA’s.

Developing a web site on Watson Content Hub

We just published a brand new step-by-step guide for creating your own site on Watson Content Hub.

The IBM Watson Content Hub Trial and Standard editions include features that help you create websites, and include a pre-installed fictitious sample website “Oslo. Oslo is a responsive sample website that illustrates what you can create by using Watson Content Hub. You can use the sample site as a starting point for customizing your own website. Work with your team to develop a website that will engage customers and drive business to your site. Follow this roadmap to get started with building and developing your own website with Watson Content Hub Standard edition. – link

The great news is the Oslo sample site is not only responsive but we also provide two samples of it, one written with React, Angular, and  Vue – which are all available for download from within the article from GitHub.

Design by: Grace McCarty

Artificial intelligence is transforming all industries and the recent partnership of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Tommy Hilfiger, and IBM is a prime example of the possibilities. I am at NRF 2018 and IBM is showcasing this partnership at their booth #1922.

The design incorporates a special thread embedded in a futuristic, removable plaid panel with IBM’s Watson’s Tone Analyzer. It can then respond in near real-time to the sentiment in a customer’s social media accounts. Read more about the process and what Grace did to create this remarkable jacket. This is a really good example where artificial intelligence augments designers in the creativity process.

Taking our innovative spirit further, we partnered with IBM and the Fashion Institute of Technology on the Reimagine Retail project to explore how artificial intelligence (AI) can identify upcoming trends faster than industry insiders to enhance the design process. The goal was to equip the next generation of retail leaders with new skills, and bring informed inspiration to their designs with the help of AI. – link

To learn more about what Tommy Hilfiger did you can visit booth #1922 if you are at NRF or you can read this article that goes into detail the process Grace and FIT took in creating this jarket or you can read this blog post by Avery Baker, CBO, Tommy Hilfigerfor, a shorter version.
