IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Add error codes to error messages

Clients often take screenshots for error messages, it would be good to be able to extract the text/specific error code for processing.

VR for health assessments

I would like to use Visual Recognition to scan bodies to see differences over time (body fat, waist size, etc), or use cameras to measure biomarkers from urine, blood, etc.

Self-driving cars

Can Visual Recognition be used to power self-driving cars? If so, which feature(s) should I use?

I want to be able to search within an image for similar results.

When using Similarity Search, I want to be able to be able to drag a bounding box around specific items within an image to perform a similar image search. The service only allowed me to analyze the entire image for similar results.

Loading file into Model every time you want to edit Model

Each time I open a vision recognition model the web page keeps loading files into model. These are about 162 files, but it takes hours to load. Though I'm using the lite version, I don't see how this level of performance will scale up if I choose ...
