Allow user defined dictionary for Kuromoji tokenization use under Japanese

Requesting to allow users to define their list of user_dictionary words for the purpose of Kuromoji’s tokenizer. I understand that WDS uses Kuromoji underneath for Japanese language. A key function of Kuromoji as the morphological analyzer for Jap...

Bulk upload for training data

We have a JSON file containing all the needed natural language queries and examples for training WDS collection. It would be helpful if there is a way to upload these bulk of queries at the same time to WDS.

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...

Stop training an annotator once the process has started

It's somewhat easy to accidentally train an annotator and it wastes 10-15 minutes if this happens. A "stop training" button would be helpful. Alternatively, a "Are you sure you want to train your annotator?" prompt. I've done this several times, b...

Improve visualization of Entity Roles, Entity Subtypes, Mention Types, and Mention Classes

When annotating a role or subtype, there is no visual cue for the Entity Role, the Entity SubType, the Mention Type, or the Mention Class. There could perhaps be colored icons appearing below the annotation to display this

Allow tooling users to be able to save queries inside of tooling

When iterating in Discovery, especially when experimenting with multiple and more complex queries it would be very useful to be able to save my query once I have it in suitable shape so I can iterate on another one without losing my work.

Add 'enriched:true/false' to the Fields API

Currently in tooling, Sample Queries, Insight Cards, and the soon-to-be Schema Explorer can only expose enrichments if there is a field called `enriched_text`. We need to be smarter than this so tooling can pull out any field that was enriched, no...

Allows relevancy training web tooling users to specify the relevancy value of the document

While I know the API supports a range of relevancy, the WDS web tooling for relevancy training only exposes "Relevant" or "Not Relevant" as options. Can the web tooling be changed to allow the tool's user to specify a relevancy number for each doc...

Ability to connect OWL ontology to Discovery JSONs

Ability to connect OWL ontology to Discovery JSONs This to imply an instance of an ontology / knowledge graph where enrichments from WDS would be associated with nodes of an ontology and returned from an WDS query? Currently WDS only works with e...
