IBM Developer Event: How to Analyze Twitter using Node-RED

NYC Blockchain Center and Founding Member IBM Developer Team cohost this series of developer events.


Please bring proof of RSVP and ID in order to attend.


About this Event


Social media plays a significant role in our communication, which can be especially crucial during times of disaster. Every word, photo, video, and follower on Twitter can provide useful data and insight. However, historically, it has been difficult for computers to make sense of unstructured data contained within a social media feed. But with Watson and AI, we can start to make sense of this incredibly useful information.

In this workshop, we will use Node-RED and Watson APIs to do AI analysis of raw unstructured data in the hopes of gaining useful insight. Node-RED is very easy to get started with and is a great open-source tool for beginners who want to write and understand programming flow. We will use services such as sentiment analysis, tone analyzer, text to speech, language translator and visual recognition to gain meaningful information. We will also have an open discussion on how we can use this type of technology to benefit us during times of disaster and recovery.


By the end of this talk, you should be able to walk away with:

• Overall understanding of Node-RED

• Creating flows in Node-RED

• Analyzing Tweets with Sentiment Analysis, Tone Analysis, Language Translator and Image Analysis

• Deploying, Importing and Exporting flows
