TopCoder: IBM: Watson AlchemyVision Facetagging Mobile App

IBM Watson AlchemyVision Face-tagging Mobile Application
Designing a phone app using the Watson AlchemyVision Face-tagging functionality.  In short, this was uses the already existing Watson-based technology to both optimize the UI for the current system as well as providing a useful end-user product for application security using face-tagging – scanning images of faces to match to pre-set images within the applications database.  The Watson Services are meant to be modular components that can be used by developers to connect with their overall application goals as reusable resources.

Appirio and TopCoder


Appirio  started with cloud service installations for corporate clients, primary focused on Salesforce.  The special twist with them is TopCoder, their crowdsourcing competitive platform through which they do a variety of projects for a wide range of needs with major corporations like GE, IBM, Salesforce, John Hancock and so on.  The three areas of work are Design, Development and Data Science.

My role was User Experience Architect in the Design track, where I’d provide design direction for projects and programs for client needs.  The three channels under Design were Wireframes, Visual Design and UI Prototyping.

The projects and programs I’m sharing from the work done with Appirio and TopCoder are largely mobile platform based, but include everything from industry metric dashboards to games designed to teach employees their company’s HR processes.
