Agenda

Have you ever wanted to build an awesome AI-powered app for iOS in a couple of hours? Here’s your chance. Using IBM’s Watson and Apple’s Core ML, you’ll be training your own machine learning models and using them in your apps in no time, creating an unprecedented user experience. In addition to that, you’ll engage with instructors who are eager to help you explore the power of integrating your mobile apps with cloud-based services, all while leveraging Swift, the fastest growing language for full stack development.

We’re going to challenge you to build an app that effectively uses IBM’s Watson and Apple’s Core ML to face down real problems. We’ll also get you thinking about taking your app beyond the device and delivering exceptional user experiences through cloud integration. Best of all, you will be diving deep into these technologies, including machine learning, secure data, core mobile services and building your own backend with cloud-based tooling that cuts development and deployment time to minutes.

Attend one or more of the IBM WWDC Workshops and get a jumpstart on your colleagues. Come, explore with us the fastest, most secure way to leverage Swift end-to-end and integrate the latest Machine Learning and Cloud capabilities into your apps.

Date & TimeWorkshop TitleDescription
Wednesday, June 6th at 9:00 AM - 11:45 AMA Deep Dive into Adding Visual Recognition Capabilities to Your iOS App usingWatson Studio and Core MLTake a deep dive into machine learning for your iOS apps using IBM’s Watson and Apple’s Core ML technologies. The objectives of this workshop are to:

1. Quickly introduce you to Watson Studio and IBM's Apple Developer Console.

2. Teach you to use Watson Visual Recognition in Core ML in your future projects.

3. Train your machine learning model iteratively to rapidly improve and extend results.

4. At the end of the workshop, you will have a working iOS app that is able to detect different types of connectors (USB, HDMI, Thunderbolt, etc).

Wednesday, June 6th at 12:00 PM - 12:55 PMExperience Full Stack Swift development with iOS and KituraIn this hands-on workshop you'll get quickly up to speed on the capabilities of server-side Swift with the Kitura web framework, and how you can build a real application that an iOS client could connect to. Learn about routing, middleware and web APIs, and how server-side Swift is a flexible and powerful choice for your next project.
Wednesday, June 6th at 1:00 PM - 2:45 PMBuilding an iOS App with millions of users - Scale, Secure, EngageWant to build an app that will reach millions of users? That's the dream, but where do you start when architecting an iOS app with that much attention? How do you scale to that much traffic, secure your data from hackers intrigued by your app's popularity, and engage all your users in order to build brand loyalty? In this workshop, you'll create an iOS app ready for prime time. Then, we'll demonstrate how secure your app truly is.
Wednesday, June 6th at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PMUse Core ML andWatson Visual Recognition to Make Your iPhone Game AppJust like the recently released Watson ML App (download it today!), you’ll be able to compete with others to take photos of objects around the room. You’ll use Watson to create and train a model that can recognize them with a handy video streaming framework for your mobile device. You’ll walk away with a fun game that anyone can play with their mobile phone as you search for objects you can decide on right here in San Jose!
