This project aims to develop a note-taking mobile application and service that acts as a personal cognitive assistant to help IBM employees extract company-specific information from their notes. The application accepts collections of documents (such as PDF files or images) and direct input to the application (such as text or handwriting). It utilizes IBM Watson cognitive services to analyze the documents and extract specific information about companies, which is then verified by the user.
