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.

Retreive sound file previously streamed to Watson Speech-to-Text

When working on improving our product, we'd like to capture field failures that could be used to train our custom speech-to-text model.  We have a wake word (handled locally) and then we establish a connection to IBM Watson's Speech-to-Text service for a more complicated command.  If the command was not understood, there are four possibilities:

1) User error - invalid or no command

2) User changed his mind after saying wake word - no command

3) Wake Word detection error - the wake word heard but not actually said, so no command was issued

4) Command detections error - Watson didn't correctly understand what the user said

Being able to retrieve from Watson, after the fact, interesting sound files could help us find things that fall into case #4 and help us train our custom model better.

    Okay. Thanks for considering and recommending an alternative.

    No plan - Recommendation is to rely on other external components like Voice Gateway which can capture incoming audio recordings
