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.

Enhance Knowledge Studio support for commonly accepted CSV formats

Problem

The current implementation of Watson Knowledge Studio imposes very strict (narrow) limitations on the CSV content format that is used for importing Dictionaries.

Knowledge Studio requires that each value is enclosed in double-quotes.

This makes it a) very difficult to produce Dictionaries that are accepted by Knowledge Studio and b) very difficult for novice users to figure out why their dictionaries are rejected by Knowledge Studio.

Solution

While there's no official standard for CSV content formatting, there are widely used and accepted rules in practice that pretty clearly define several flexible options for unambiguously specifying the CSV content, while not imposing strict single format.

See a good example here: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4180
