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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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 search by Icelandic inflections / word forms
We have been looking for ways to support searching in Discovery by the different Icelandic word forms / inflections. We tried uploading the different forms into the Discovery synonyms support, but encountered a limitation of max 5000 expansions or max 25000 terms.
Other, ElasticSearch-based search solutions have solved this for Icelandic with a stemmer dictionary like this one: https://github.com/island-is/elasticsearch-dictionaries#stemmertxt
We've seen unofficial claims that Discovery uses ElasticSearch . If that is true, we wonder if there is some way to use a stemmer dictionary like that with Discovery? - or if there are other ways to support search by the different word forms.
It would be great if Discovery could either accept all the different Icelandic words and their variations as synonyms, or better yet, utilize a stemmer dictionary like is possible with ElasticSearch.
On a related note: Representatives from the Icelandic Centre for Language Technology  have reached out to us and expressed interest in presenting their offerings to Watson R&D - do you have contacts that might be interested in taking them up on their offer? - I'll attach a document from them with an overview of the available resources.
