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.

Allow metadata to be saved with custom language models

We need to create and manage custom language models for a potentially large number of different clients.

We would like to be able to save metadata with a custom language model that would help us to identify things like what client account the custom language model is for.

This metadata could be simple arbitrary key, value pairs saved with a custom language model at create time, and retrieved with the custom language model when a get is done.

For example:

 request = { "name": model_name,"base_model_name": base_model,"description" : model_name,
"metadata" : { "customer_id": "123456",
"type": "financial",
"billing_id" : "7865421"} }, auth=(username,password), verify=False, headers=headers, data=json.dumps(request).encode('utf-8'))

Currently we need to maintain this sort of data (association between a custom language model and the customer that it was created for) externally (e.g. in a database table), which needs to be kept synchronized with the actual custom language models.

Additionally, it would be nice to be able to retrieve custom language models by name or by metadata (though this is not essential since it's always possible to perform a GET to get all custom language models and then filter on the client side).
