Discover how with IBM Watson, you can virtually explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one has gone before...AND enjoy Chef Watson inspired cocktails & appetizers!
During the meetup, John Cutter (Director of Product IBM Watson Developer Labs & AR/VR Labs) will discuss how by utilizing IBM Watson, the Star Trek: Bridge Crew virtual reality game applies an artificial intelligence platform with enabled voice commands.
IBM’s new “VR Speech Sandbox" (the software used to build the Star Trek: Bridge Crew feature,) is now available for all developers to adapt for their own VR applications and services. The Sandbox combines IBM’s Watson Unity software development kit with two services, Watson Speech to Text and Watson Conversation. Developers now have the opportunity to build new and innovative user interfaces, leveraging the power of voice interaction in virtual reality.
With IBM Watson’s interactive speech and cognitive capabilities, Star Trek: Bridge Crew will provide players the opportunity to use their voice and natural-language commands to interact with their virtual Starfleet crew members. This feature is part of a strategic partnership between IBM and Ubisoft.
Prior to the Star Trek discussion, Chef Doug Pollard (IBM Watson Health) and his team will be preparing the food and beverage for this event using Chef Watson technology. Chef Watson takes a user’s inputs (ingredients to use or avoid, style of cooking, and desired dish), and creates never-before seen recipes. The ingredients it selects are based on what it has learned might pair well based on the recipes it has read, as well as what it knows about the underlying food chemistry – specifically the flavor compounds of each ingredient.
