Hello, We are RPA developers from the Netherlands, Erik van Gemert and Anatoly Chernenko. We created a custom connector to IBM Watson Personality Insights Service for UiPath RPA

What is IBM Watson Personality Insights?

IBM Watson Personality Insights makes possible to rapidly build cognitive, cloud-based exploration applications that unlock insights hidden in unstructured data, including your own proprietary data, as well as public and third-party data. For complete reference follow the link https://console.bluemix.net/docs/services/personality-insights/index.html#about

How it is meant to function: Provide a text file with text written by a person of interest and get back response including ratings such as Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion and Openness. Raw output as plain text is also provided.

How it may be applied to other use cases: You can use the service for variety of purposes. For example, you can build a bot to read emails and “figure out” likelihood that a person would buy your product.

How to use connector: Before you begin:

  1. Create an instance of the service - go to the Personality Insights page (https://console.bluemix.net/) in the IBM Cloud Catalog.
  2. Sign up for a free IBM Cloud account or log in.

  4. Copy the credentials to authenticate to your service instance:
  5. From the IBM Cloud dashboard, click on your Personality Insights service instance to go to the Personality Insights service dashboard page.
