A few of months ago some of our talented developers presented one of our most recent Labs Project, O3 Barista, at Philly BarCamp. We are proud to announce that we have launched the official application online, with a decision to open-source.
Barista utilizes IBM Watson’s Personality Insights API, to run an analysis of a user’s social footprint to identify personality traits. Using an algorithm we designed that uses machine learning to optimize results, the application maps Watson’s analysis to different types of coffee roasts and suggests them to the user. The user is presented with the option to provide feedback, which our algorithm learns from to refine the experience.
