Data preparation
Uncover hidden insights in your data with built-in data cleaning and transformations with Data Refinery. Have access to a tabular view of your data, including visualizations and summary statistics, which help you to uncover hidden insights by asking the right business questions of your data.

Explore the data science lifecycle

Data exploration
Using the included dashboarding service, produce stunning visualizations directly from your data in real time, allowing you to illuminate previously unknown patterns, relationships or other actionable findings. Then easily share with your team.

Create and test a visual recognition model

Model development
Test and deploy models, using customizable compute environments that scale up and down with your workflow. Choose the best environment based on the phase of your model and the scale needed. Choose from various capacities of Anaconda, Spark and GPU environments.

Try the hands-on lab to create deep learning models

Model evaluation
Improve your model's performance by visualizing fit between model and data, with Model Visualization within SPSS Modeler.

Walk through the process of building a machine-learning model

Model deployment
Once your model is ready, deploy and score your model with the available IBM Watson Machine Learning service.

Build, deploy, test, and retrain a predictive machine learning model
This tutorial walks you through the process of building a predictive machine learning model, deploying it as an API to be used in applications, testing the model and retraining the model with feedback data. All of this happening in an integrated and unified self-service experience on IBM Cloud.

Go to the tutorial

Analyze and visualize open data with Apache Spark and Watson Studio
In this tutorial, you will analyze and visualize open data sets using a Jupyter Notebook on IBM Watson Studio and Apache Spark service for processing. For this use case, you will start by combining data about population growth, life expectancy and country ISO codes into a single data frame. Then, query and visualize that data in several ways using the Pixiedust library for Python.
