Watson Discovery has the ability to understand natural language and extract sentiments, concepts, roles, and other kinds of information. And with that information it can organize it, find patterns, and make connections. For GRAMMYconnect, we trained Watson to analyze millions of bios and news articles on GRAMMY artists and affiliates—ultimately curating a profile for each artist, and surfacing connections between all the celebrities in GRAMMYconnect.
As you browse different artists, check out their connections, and change your search criteria, a complex ranking algorithm helps surface either the most unique or most common relationships—catering the results to your interests.
