Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Watson Skill Tooling should provide option to import or copy paste dialog nodes
We publish Chatbot watson workspace every release with new dialog nodes , entity & intents to support new features. Each of our customers have their own instance of chatbot / workspace and they also add new capability to this bot by creati...
One of the issues i have when i test things out is i often need to delete a dialog node to verify if something works. Deleting a dialog node with a lot of configurations such as conditional checks, detailed answer, jump to conditions etc is making...
As of now the intent recommendations work only within intents and so it is really hard to go to every intent and add examples, it will be really easy if we can upload the csv and it classifies the intent recommendation for every question. We shoul...
When configuring intents, why cannot annotate samples with system entities.
"I want to book an appointment with Dr. John for Fifi on next week"
Ideally I would like to annotate "John" as "@sys-person" and "next week as a "@sys-da...
When creating a folder you must decide whether digressions are allowed or not. To simplify the top level dialog structure is would be nice to be able to organise nodes in folders without these settings (they would act simply as containers which ha...
Update the Watson Assistant UI code in Github to be mobile first/responsive.
Mocking up a quick chatbot is an extremely powerful method of showing clients (IBM clients or clients of ISVs) the benefits of Watson Assistant and how quickly it can be done. I have experienced this being extremely diluted because of the lack of ...
Feature request: Enhance/add filters to fuzzy matching
I have a scenario where fuzzy matching should only be executed in regards to spaces and special characters such as (),.- I do not want the fuzzy matching to apply to alphanumeric characters (letters or digits), as I am trying to match to an exact...
Ability to make an API to see all the data that is present in the Improve Tab of a Skills. To see all of the Total Conversation data for the past 30 days, the number of times an intent being called, the number of active users, etc.
Ability to Archive or De-activate a Node in Dialog
If I'm missing current functionality, please forgive me, but I find this ability very helpful in other systems I've used. It would be nice if there was an option for each dialog node (where current functions like "move", "duplicate", "delete" ar...
Contract with VA to use thier 9 million active (as well as former) member medical history in regards to data on prostate cancer. There have been very limited studies on prostate as to cancer cause and follow up. Mainly because disease is for 50 and up (60 mostly). Those that get cured drift away. Others die off. There are only 3 stnd methods of treatment all poor. There is zero concensus after a 100 years. Some believe its low testosterone as one ages. Others believe its testosterone itself that cause prostate cancer. Others believe its DHT converted testosterone. Others believe its first a low testosterone and then the testosterone is increased. The VA give blood tests called labs regularly to all 9 million members several times a year. They should include as standard labs for PSA marker, testosterone, DHT, estrogene and lutinizing. Shortly if not already available Watson could generate data on 9 million plus millions that have passed on to determine which of the named hormones/issues contribute directly to diagnosed prostate cancer. In my case, had a pituitary benigh tumor where testosterone dropped to nothing. After removal, testosterone back in normal range. Then PSA shot up dramatically, then leveled off. Then pituitary had issues again with testosterone low. Took prescribed testosterone. Then/since PSA keeps increasing dramatically. Biopsy indicated cancer. I have 5 years of labs for PSA, testosterone, DHT. I think its pathetic now that there is cloud computing and easy mgnt of data that using the VA a perfect captive market analysizing data each of these markers/hormones. VA captures weight every visit and other particulars. Those using the VA do not fade away once cured or even with slow growth cancer so data is massive as nearly all VA patients are older than 50. Donate this effort for humanitarian and get tax write off. Related idea for health. Set up a self serve as well as comprehensive data base for all diseases. Most doctors are not nearly up to date in the myriad of data or studies on all the diseases in their field. Develop 2 apps. One for patients, Show image of front/back and sides. Let them click on part of body they have pain/problem with. Then have Watson (after web crawling world data base of all diseases) display all the symptons for this disease. Let patient check off those they think they have. Next, let them list all other existing issues just like every stupid form you have to fill out over and over and over again at every doctor, dentist etc.Then IBM could sell this app to medical health companies to funnel traffic to them. Same type of version could be used for a doctor during/after a visit. Dr could enter by voice/transcribe what patient said. Watson could come back after reviewing all the diseases in the world against the listed symptoms and make determination of what disease(s) it is and recommend testing/treatment and most recents trials/studies. I dont want some doc trying to keep up with all the health/medical information being developed. Actually, most first line doctors could be eliminated or at least first vists be more productive. Medical health could reach around the world just like mobile phone. This will make people take ownership of their health- dis/ease. This is what is recommened before you visit doctor anyway. List all symptoms, pain, questions and related to be discussed at first meeting. Dont sit their like a log and have him guess which of the 100s of thousands of diseases you have. I was the one reading my labs with the PSA going up over the years not any of the doctors assigned to me. I
I gave all that info in the idea above. Cull the VA for prostate cancer data via the blood labs on 9 million vets that use the VA health care service until they die so that trials and studies can be continuous and on going. Benefit is pro bono tax...
