This video goes through a demo/workshop on how to build a Java EE App that using Cloudant and Watson to suggest employee recommendations. This video is outdated, visit http://github.com/IBM-Bluemix/talent-... for the latest instructions.

The app also using JQuery, Angular, and Bootstrap on the frontend. This app was internally developed by IBM employees at a 48 hour hackathon.

The source code is available for the app at http://ibm.biz/talent-manager.
There is an accompanying blog post at https://developer.ibm.com/bluemix/201...

Use Case Behind the App:
Meet Ivy

She's a talent manager at a growing tech startup.
She's having trouble finding the right candidate based on: ..* technical skills ..* personal compatibility
I wish I could clone my developer, Emory Wren -- having two guys like Emory working here would be amazing.
But that's not possible. So what's the next best thing?

** Talent Hotspot A web application that allows you to search for candidates from a pool of applicants based on how closely they resemble one of your current employees. Talent Hotspot uses Watson's User Modeling API service to analyze a potential candidate's personality based on their answers to a questionnaie (completed upon application to Ivy's company.)

The application can issue queries such as,

"Find me a Developer like Craig Smith". Then search through all possible candidate and return a ranked list of candidates sorted by highest-to-lowest percentage of personality resemblance. From here, searches can be refined by including technical skills. "Find me a Developer like Craig Smith, and knows Java, C and Python"
