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.

Refugee Crisis: Interview Analysis

Refugees and Asylum Applicants are interviewed verbally. In most cases translators give answers in german. These answers are written manually into a protokol. The given information is critical for two reasons. Decision to Stay and Security. Today All information details are verified manually in a "best to know" approach.

What if the interview would be automatically written due to speech to text and analyzed intelligently.


By the way: This is appropriate for all verbal interviews. eG. Job Seeker Interviews

    So the ask is to provide speech to text for German correct? If so, we already have a idea for it SST-I-17

    I would add that a machine translation can further strengthen this. However, we would need to overcome the typical constraints, that all languages are only translated to English, as we all know that a two-phased translation say from an Asian or MidEast Language translated to English, then translated to say German results in low quality that no client would accept as being valuable.
