Organizations are always looking forward to accelerate their Data Science pipeline, but have a major obstacle that occurs is towards the skills gap as well as the time taken to implement tasks that could be automated.

With SPSS Modeler, data scientists can accelerate tasks in a way that it’s following a certain pipeline in a way that their solution follows the entire data science methodology, from attaching the data set to cleaning and filtering the data and finally creating machine learning model, and the possibilities are limitless.

Recently on the 22nd of February Worood Dabbas, Tosin Amuda and I (Fawaz Siddiqi) conducted a webinar on creating a chatbot based on crisis communication. The main idea of the use case was to keep the public and users informed about the latest COVID-19 development and cases, and this was achieved by linking Watson Assistant with Watson Discovery & the COVID-19 API with the help of IBM Cloud Functions which is a serverless platform.
