IBM Watson Assistant is named as a Leader in conversational computing. It has become increasingly important for businesses to build engaging interactions that deliver value to their customers, and IBM is proud to offer technologies that help developers and enterprises enhance those experiences.

The report evaluated the most significant conversational computing platforms, diving into each vendor’s current offering and strategy and including customer feedback.

I always work with IBM Watson Assistant to create Virtual Assistants, since the name was “dialog”.  This service is my first option to create conversational applications.

You can enable Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) for your web applications on a Liberty server.

Enabling CORS will allow JavaScript clients to make requests against your application on the Liberty server even if the client and the server are on two different domains. Web browsers prevent these requests due to same-origin policy.

I create the following configuration on my local machine  on server.xml file:

<cors domain="/ApplicationContext" <-- application context. It will work only for this app.
   allowedOrigins="http://localhost:8080"  <-- this is my local Node.js Server.
   allowedMethods="GET, HEAD, POST, PUT"
   allowedHeaders="Referer, Cache-Control, Pragma, Accept, Accept-Language, Accept-Encoding, Accept-Charset, Content-Type, Content-Length, User-Agent, Authorization, passwd, X-Update-Nonce, X-Shindig-ST, X-IC-CRE-Request-Origin, X-IC-CRE-User, X-LConn-Auth, Accept*, Content*, Access-Control-Allow-Origin*"
exposeHeaders="Content-Type, Last-Modified, etag"
allowCredentials="true" maxAge="3600" />

A week ago I participated in the Global Legal Hackathon as a mentor to several startups.

The Global Legal Hackathon engages law schools, law firms and in-house departments, legal technology companies, governments, and service providers to the legal industry – across the globe.

It  bring together the best thinkers, doers and practitioners in law in support of a unified vision: rapid development of solutions to improve the legal industry, world-wide.

My city, Belo Horizonte was one of the hosts in Brazil.  Two startups i mentored, to use IBM Watson, was classified in second an third place.

Next week will be the second round to select ideas to the final event in New York.

I received an e-mail from HCL Support  (IBM) about a problem with the interin fix.

The e-mail and later a call from the support told me to download the fix again and if in case i was installed the fix how to remove and install the good one.

The problem was with the fix files from last week. The files was updated with the ones above.

“I would like to notify you because  we found a problem with this Interim Fix. The problem discovered and that the fix can’t be uninstalled properly, which can cause problems later when a new hotfix or interim fix is applied on him.”

1- Download the new IF1 files
W64        901FP10HF66_W64.exe        http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/quickorder?product=ibm%2FLotus%2FLotus+Domino&fixids=DominoServer_901FP10IF1_W64&source=SAR
W32        901FP10HF68_W32.exe        http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/quickorder?product=ibm%2FLotus%2FLotus+Domino&fixids=DominoServer_901FP10IF1_W32&source=SAR

2- Shutdown the Domino server

3 – Copy nstrings.dll to your domino Server

4 – Install the new interin fix.

I start a new java project on eclipse using the SDK for Watson.
When i try to connect on any watson service i got the error:

CWPKI0022E: SSL HANDSHAKE FAILURE: A signer with SubjectDN CN=*.watsonplatform.net, O=International Business Machines Corporation,
L=Armonk, ST=New York, C=US was sent from the target host

This error means, that the local Liberty trust store does not have the correct signer certificate from the remote WATSON website where you tries to connect to.
It’s a certificate error. To solve the problem on my MAC i just do the following:

1 – Download the cetificate. The easy way i found was:

openssl s_client -host https://gateway.watsonplatform.net -port 443 -prexit -showcerts

2 – Create a text file with the first certificate

3 – Import the certificate on the truststore

keytool -import -alias watsonsigner -file cert1.pem -keystore /Users/[pathto key.jks]/key.jks -storepass password -storetype jks

I use many vm’s in my day to day on my Mac. When I’m on clients and I have to use different networks of my other, always have to be changing the ip’s of virtual servers and this is a big problem.

A friend sent me the following tip : Place a secondary ip in your MAC that belongs to the same network of VM’s.

I don’t find a easy way to put a secondary ip on my wifi connection. The only way i found was duplicating the wifi network and set up fixed ip in the same network of virtual machines .

Now i can connect on any wifi network and my Mac access all vm’s without changing the ip address

Quad9 is a free, recursive, anycast DNS platform that provides end users robust security protections, high-performance, and privacy. 

Security: Quad9 blocks against known malicious domains, preventing your computers and IoT devices from connecting malware or phishing sites. Whenever a Quad9 user clicks on a website link or types in an address into a web browser, Quad9 will check the site against the IBM X-Force threat intelligence database of over 40 billion analyzed web pages and images. Quad9 also taps feeds from 18 additional threat intelligence partners to block a large portion of the threats that present risk to end users and businesses alike. 

Performance: Quad9 systems are distributed worldwide in more than 70 locations at launch, with more than 160 locations in total on schedule for 2018. These servers are located primarily at Internet Exchange points, meaning that the distance and time required to get answers is lower than almost any other solution. These systems are distributed worldwide, not just in high-population areas, meaning users in less well-served areas can see significant improvements in speed on DNS lookups. The systems are “anycast” meaning that queries will automatically be routed to the closest operational system.

In the next week Digital Experience products:

• WebSphere Portal
• Web Content Manager
• Digital Experience Patterns
• Digital Experience on Cloud
• Forms Experience Builder
• Forms Experience Builder on Cloud

will use the new IBM Support Community support portal. The interface is clean and you can search for fixes, open Cases (not PMR’s anymore) and talk with Watson on  a chat screen.

Watson™ Explorer Natural Language Querying (NLQ) improves the user search experience by allowing the user to query Watson Explorer using natural language queries such as questions.

This is accomplished through the use of two components: Query Modifier, which modifies user queries before they are executed, and Ontolection Trainer, which provides machine learning tools that can generate ontolections for use in query expansion.

The setup process is not hard you can follow the instructions here.

But how to use it?

If you are using the REST API you must add this to your query:

&query-modification-macros=enhance-query-with-querymodifier

On WEX applications (using projects) the process is a little different and not well documented. The Knowledge center only tell you about the macro and not were to put the macro.

Log on on the administration interface and go to your project and go to:

Project > Advanced > Misc > section “Other” > option “Query modification macro” > Set it to enhance-project-with-querymodifier
