This post provides a hands-on introduction to cognitive computing applications in Flow. It introduces the IBM Watson cognitive actions for unstructured text analytics.
This blog post provides a worked example of how to import and analyze Microsoft Access Data. We learn how to use the Access Database integration interface to consume the sample Northwind database into Flow. A step-by-step walkthrough is provided which details how to denormalize the various relational tables into a consolidated flattened set for analysis. We learn how to apply generic expressions to compute new data points on the fly. Finally, we learn how to leverage Flow's multidimensional analysis engine to compute hypercubes and summarize the data.
