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.

Build Discovery support for automatic correction of mis-spellings instead of requiring Query expansion to explicitely train Discovery

We are an OEM partner of IBM and have built a Chatbot offering with Watson Discovery search integration.

Feedback from one of our Customer's indicates that they are looking for built-in Watson Discovery support for correcting mis-spellings / offering choices to correct mis-spellings similar to Google search.

They are not interested in explicitely training Discovery using query expansions beacause of the manual effort involved.

Hence it would be good to add built-in support for correcting mis-spellings to Discovery,

Who would benefit from this IDEA? All Customer's who use Discovery search. Can help reduce in explicitely training Discovery for correcting mis-spellings using Discovery search
