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.

Watson discards changes in Dialogue nodes done during the training - Possibility of team coworking on the same skill in one moment would make development faster and smoother

1. If one person in the team is training the assistant (adding user examples to Intents, adding Entities, or making other changes) and the assistant is processing them ("Watson is training" stripe in the "Try it" window), then no other team member could successfully make simultaneous changes (rewriting text, etc.) in responses in Dialogue nodes. Such response update is displayed until the training is finished. Then it refreshes back to its previous form (even when the update is saved by pressing Enter or clicking elsewhere). That is a great issue because it precludes team cooperation, rapidly slows development, and tosses ephemeral thoughts.
2. Instead, we would appreciate the ability of simultaneous work of team members in the same assistant
3. Browser: Chrome & others

1. Open the same assistant's Dialogue on two computers
2. Open Try it window
3. Start teaching user examples into any Intent on computer A and rewrite the text in any response node on computer B while Watson is training.
