IBM Cloud Developer Console for Apple
At the Think 2018 conference, Apple and IBM came out with the Watson Services for Core ML and the IBM Cloud Developer Console for Apple. This brings together Apple’s Core ML tools with IBM’s Watson which enables developers to add artificial intelligence into mobile apps.
What is IBM Cloud Developer Console?
The IBM Cloud Developer Console is an expansion of the IBM Cloud platform, Bluemix. The IBM Cloud Developer Console will have templates of apps that are ready for coding according to the user’s needs. It introduces new tools to create Cloud Native applications across the web, mobile and backend. It provides a new experience to the user and goes beyond just the mobile. It will provide application starters complete with all the necessary configurations and cut down on development time. The coding business logic can take place at a much faster pace for the developers.
Cloud Native is an application development enabled by Cloud technology. All these need to be incorporated into the software with applications that are different from the traditional approaches. The IBM Cloud Developer Console in turn makes it easy to create the Cloud Native applications for the mobile and web.
Building smarter iOS apps with IBM Cloud Developer Console
With IBM Watson Services for Apple’s Core ML, apps can be created to access Watson capabilities from iPhone and iPad that can give insights even when you are offline. With the IBM Cloud Developer Console for Apple, you can use the Watson Services for Core ML and other services on IBM Cloud.
The iOS apps can analyze images, figure out visual content accurately and even train models that utilize Watson Services. You can begin with the existing Watson models or customize and train models to suit your needs.
Analyze images and understand visual content:
With the help of Watson Visual Recognition, you can figure out the visual content. It already comes with models that enable the app to analyze the visuals for various types of content like scenes, objects and much more.
Customization of Models:
You can have different models to suit your needs. The Watson models can be customized by using your own images to suit your individual or business needs.
You can either create or manage existing models that can constantly learn and be enhanced over time.
Building apps that integrate with IBM Cloud Developer Console
The IBM Cloud Developer Console for Apple enables you to create apps that integrate with IBM Cloud. With this you can use Watson Services for Core ML and all the other IBM Cloud services that include authentication, data, analytics and much more. The IBM Cloud Developer Console provides starter kits for common frameworks which integrate with IBM Cloud.
The IBM Cloud Developer Console for Apple gives the developer all the resources he needs to design apps according to his needs on one portal. The templates of applications are ready to code to user specification. This will in turn reduce the amount of time for developers to set up micro services and roll out applications.
