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.

Map dictionaries to subtypes and provide evaluation stats for subtypes

Currently, only being able to map dictionaries to entity types makes bootstrapping projects with subtypes very difficult. It also eliminates a major way to improve recall. Additionally, not being able to see stats at the subtype level makes it alm...

Need to return Normalized entity values from WKS custom model

Applying annotation to documents ingested into WDS using a custom WKS model allows the client to tag content based on their own vocabulary/domain. Currently WKS model can't be configured with the normalizeEntities flag (like Alchemy used to be) a...

Delete button for individual docs/results

Currently there is no simple or interactive way to delete documents within the WDS toolkit making it difficult for non-developers to manage the WDS corpus without having to use curl/sdk/api. While it is easy to upload individual documents via drag...

Applying NLU enrichments on the question

Many times, customer assumes that WDS will apply enrichments to the question also and use that to help in search. This is not currently the case. WDS need to have a way where by default (or by config) NLU enrichments can be applied on the question...

Ability to split paragraphs inside a document

Several documents rely on a structure that leverages a single section for a bunch of unrelated paragraphs, we'd like to do document splitting based on paragraph marks at ingestion time. This could be accomplished by allowing other tags (not only H...

Allow custom IDs for documents when adding them to the discovery index

Whenever we face discovery setups with multiple stages or environments, its very hard and time consuming to manage multiple copies of the same document as discovery generates a new, different ID for each document in each collection. It would make ...

Smart Document Understanding to produce a readable PDF from original scanned PDF

In solutions where text archives are digitized to become searchable in Watson Discovery, Smart Document Understanding is a promising new feature. However, it does not by side effect produce a searchable (text-based) PDF when OCRing a scanned PDF. ...

Ability to clone collection from one environment to another

We have some collections in Dallas and others in Tokyo to secure the redundancy. All collections must have completely the same ranking as each other. For that reason, we need to clone collections of Watson Discovery from one environment to another.
