Analyzing Customer Feedback Emotions with IBM Watson and Bluemix OpenWhisk

Victoria Fedzkovich


Natural language processing and machine learning enable IBM Watson to derive insights from various types of digital communication. For example, its text analysis services can help users to understand the sentiment and concepts of content, get personality characteristics of individuals based on textual information, or develop human-like conversations with virtual agents.

Detecting the tone of customer messages—whether they are text or audio—is also among the many possible scenarios of employing Watson. For a hands-on session on a Bluemix day at the IBM Finland office, we prepared a microservice-based app that analyzes text and provides emotion scores for customer feedback. This post shares the details on how the app was implemented using several Bluemix services and reveals some lessons learned.
