Making Watson Assistant available on other Public Cloud Platforms

Currently Watson Assistant is either available on IBM Public Cloud or ICP. However at times enterprises are already tuned to major provides like AWS etc. If Watson Assistant is made available on MarketPlace of these Cloud Providers it will increas...

Adding Counterexamples to intents

Sometimes I wish I can include counterexamples to intents so that they don't get triggered. For example, I have a make a payment intent, but that is being triggered when the customer says ''I don't want to pay my bill, I want to do this"

Option to add irrelevant examples to export intents

Add examples to intent helps to train intents, but when you export the intents to another workspace the confidence of the example is different because in the previous workspace is trained with irrelevants examples. Would be great the option of add...

Entity Folders

I think it would be pretty useful to to be able to organize entities into separate folders. I'd love to be able to have categories of entities organized so that having a lot of entities would be reasonable to work with.

API calls for testing and production load should be treated and priced differently

During the construction or the improvement of a virtual assistant, we need to test its behavior thoroughly. It involves using a list of questions to check if the answers are consistent. It can respresent a very large volume of API calls. This usag...

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" are ...

@sys-location entity not available in italian for Beta System Entities

I think it is quite useful an assistant able to understand the location of a user based in other languages. Specially if you want to complete user profile and play with geocoding data. There are other platforms who offer this service in italian ri...

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...
