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.

Better error messages

The current error message doesn't tell me if I made an error from my side (e.g. images exceeded size limits) or from the service's side (Bluemix is down).

Recognize ingredients within food images

The food model currently recognizes entire meals, but I would like the ability to parse out individual ingredients from the image.

Make datasets for the VR demo available

Feedback from a user: "I think I would like to grab the data sets for the demos that you show on the webpage, yet neither of them are available which I find very odd. That would probably help me use it if I could have a step-by-step instructions w...

Show more than 100 results for Similarity Search

The service was limited to a max of 100 most similar images - I would like this to be increased to at least 1000, if not unlimited.
