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.

Relevancy Training for Passages Merged

Relevancy training for whole documents is one thing, however allowing for relevancy training on passages would in my view greatly increase the power of WDS. We find a lot of use cases where the correct document is returned, but we need WDS to return the most relevant passage from that document, but the accuracy for passage retrieval (defined as, if the returned passage is what would be expected from a manual human search of the doc) is less satisfactory.  This feature would greatly assist with handling long tail questions for chat bots, and scaling bots with the WA + WDS design pattern. I would be interested to know how feasible this feature is. 


Train Watson to improve results feature in Watson Discovery Service

Currently, I can train Watson on document level. Can that be extended to passage level? Sometimes, the first passage that is getting extracted is not the relevant passage. It would be great if I could train Watson on passage level as well.
