Case Study

What athlete should endorse your product? Ask AI. OpenSponsorship, a sports sponsorship company, has built a base of more than 3,500 athletes about whom they track tons of data, from their credentials and lifestyle interests to the demographics of their social media followers. All this information comes from cloud-based AI technology—like natural language processing and image recognition—that they get by connecting their platform to IBM Watson services. Read how high-tech AI delivers new opportunities for athlete sponsorships with IBM Watson services.


IBM hosted a webinar to help you learn about the the newly released Watson Knowledge Studio on IBM Cloud and how subject matter experts can build and refine a machine learning annotator to a specific domain without writing a single line of code.
