Computer Programming

August 17, 2017

Students in Mr. Patocka's Computer Programming Level 1 class will have the opportunity to learn the new IBM Watson API programming language.  Unlike Apple's Siri personality that many iPhone users are familiar with, Watson uses human logic and thinking skills, as well as modern "computer power" to think like we do in order to complete tasks.  
In Programming 1, students will program a lesson on the Code Academy website which will allow their programming to analyze sample Twitter messages to predict the interests and hobbies of the Twitter users that wrote the messages based simply on the message.
This is an exciting, new lesson on the Code Academy website and could be the future programming language the PC computers use to think and understand their human users!
