Build an Image-Recognition Slack Bot in Node.js with Watson


  • Node.js
  • Slack
  • Watson

Ever wanted to add AI to your application but didn’t know where to start? In this screencast, I will use IBM’s Watson platform to make an image-recognition Slack bot in Node.js. In just 30 minutes, we will register a trial account on Bluemix, connect Watson’s Visual Recognition service to a Slack bot we’ve built in Node.js using IBM’s watson-node-sdk.

Check out the code I wrote in the video here.
