The Sentiment of Things

IBM Research intern Anca-Nicoleta Ciubotaru recently used #IBMBluemix and #IBMWatson services for a unique project that adjusts the lighting in a room based on sentiment extracted from people’s conversations.

“The conversational speech is captured and transformed into text using the IBM Bluemix Speech to Text API. Then sentiment keywords are extracted from the text in a subsequent step by using the IBM AlchemyAPI. And then it’s sent to an embedded system built with a Raspberry Pi which can control several LEDs. For instance, a happy mood would turn on a green LED; sad mood, a red one.” - Cuibotaru
