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.

Return the requested number of results when using de-duplicate feature

In speaking to some Discovery News customers, it would be a better user experience to provide the requested number of results to a news query even when deduplication is being used.  So today, I send a news query and request 50 results. If the first 50 results happen to contain 20 duplicate articles, my response only includes 30 articles, and not 50.  While it may be useful to know the results have been deduplicated, not sending back the requested number of results isn't a desirable user experience, especially when users are paying per query for news.

    This is a very reasonable request but due to how deduplication and our pricing works this is not technically possible at this time
