Using the IBM WatsonTM Dialog Service for Assisting Parallel Programming

University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap (DV)


IBM Watson is on the verge of becoming a milestone in computer science as it is using a new technology that relies on cognitive systems. IBM Watson is able to understand questions in natural language and give proper answers. The use of cognitive computing in parallel programming is an open research issue. Therefore, the objective of this project is to investigate how IBM Watson can help in parallel programming by using the Dialog Service. In order to answer our research question an application has been built based on the IBM Watson Dialog Service and a survey has been carried out. The results of our research demonstrate that the developed application offers valuable answers to the questions asked by a programmer and the survey reveals that students would be interested in using it.
