Greetings, developerWorks Open Tech subscribers!
Quantum computing has the potential to change everything we know about computing. The new QISKit open source project lets you tap into quantum's limitless possibilities. Its API and SDK enable developers and researchers to conduct quantum explorations using simple Python scripts.
Robots and chatbots built with artificial intelligence and embodied cognition are changing the way entire industries operate. And many of these bots are built on open source technology. TJBot, one of the newest projects on developerWorks Open, is a do-it-yourself kit that enables you to build a programmable cardboard robot powered by IBM Watson. And be sure to check out our prebuilt chatbot scenarios and start creating your own IBM Watson-powered chatbot.
The excitement is building ahead of InterConnect 2017, IBM's premier technology conference. Once again, open technology will be front and center in Las Vegas. To get your week started, join us at the Open Tech Summit (#IBMOTS) for an all-in-one overview of diverse open tech topics. Then take deeper dives into your favorite hot topics throughout the week.
All that, plus a whole slate of new projects, blog posts, events, and videos. We're ready for a little March Madness, and we hope you are too -- there's no better time to dig into open technology.
