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.

Map dictionaries to subtypes and provide evaluation stats for subtypes

Currently, only being able to map dictionaries to entity types makes bootstrapping projects with subtypes very difficult. It also eliminates a major way to improve recall. Additionally, not being able to see stats at the subtype level makes it almost impossible to manage projects with subtypes.

Why is it useful?

Improves the value and applicability of dictionary-based pre-annotators.

How should it work?

Entity sub-types should allow association with dictionaries, the same way as top-level entity types do.

Entity-subtypes should be included in the model statistics (model evaluation) the same way as top-level entity types do.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? As a Watson Developer specializing in WKS I would like a way to map dictionaires to subtypes and see their stats

    Have just been on a project using WKS and found that the automatic annotation based on a dictionary was very efective, but it still meant that the users had to click on every pre-annotated entity and select the appropriate subtype.

     

    I'd be wanting each dictionary entry to have an optional entity subtype be able to be recorded against it.

    I think that "see stats at the subtype level" is an important idea by itself. I will open it if you don't mind.
