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.

Ability to split paragraphs inside a document

Several documents rely on a structure that leverages a single section for a bunch of unrelated paragraphs, we'd like to do document splitting based on paragraph marks at ingestion time.

This could be accomplished by allowing other tags (not only H1, H2, Hx...) to split a document.

----- EDIT -----

Given that SDU is now available (allowing to split documents on an identified field) and that document segmentation and SDU can't be both enabled, it would be relevant to find a way to allow paragraph splitting using SDU.

    Hi Phil, it does exists but only for H1 to H6, it would be helpful to do it for some other HTML tags.

    This feature already exists: https://console.bluemix.net/docs/services/discovery/building.html#performing-segmentation

    Using predefined tags as an option to define the desired boundary of a paragraph(passage) will be very helpful to get a self-explainable answer from WDS.

     

    The current passage level function seems much to be based on standard html tag(<p>), and guessing the paragraph/passage boundary by the trailing \r\n and the leading space of the following text line. This approach is not able to reserve the context from the "malformatted" documents(most technology manuals, troubleshooting guidelines, administration guidelines etc.) where natural language and computer language are intermingled, hence the common format of boundary of a paragraph is not achievable.
