Short Bytes: Today, I’m going to tell you about 12-year-old app developer Tanmay Bakshi, who is making headlines after his recent talk at IBM Developer Connect In Bengaluru. He has developed an IBM Watson-based algorithm named AskTanmay, which is also the world’s first Web-Based NLQA system.
Tanmay has developed an algorithm called “AskTanmay”, which is designed by taking assistance from IBM Watson’s cognitive APIs. It’s the world’s first Web-Based NLQA system.
During his address at the developer conference, he showed how AskTanmay solves queries pertaining to ‘Person,’ ‘Organisation,’ ‘Location,’ or ‘Date’ type.
Tanmay has even open sourced his app to make it more accessible to his fellow developers.
Ever since publishing his first iOS app on the App Store, he has learned new technologies at an exponential rate, becoming fluent in today’s all major programming languages.
He is currently in seventh grade and a co-author of a book called Hello Swift, which teaches the basics of iOS coding to the young learners.
