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.

Ability to disable or customize stemming

Watson Discovery uses stemming to identify valid matches. Based on our experience it appears that stemming is applied in both Natural Language Queries and also Discovery Language Queries. It seems to also enforced in phrase searching. This is usef...

Ability re-process documents without re-ingestion

Currently we need to re-ingest documents to update any enrichment. This is specifically not very practical when we have WKS model involved. If the model is refined & updated, we need to re-ingest the docs. This is very annoying for customers ...

Delete All Documents API

Right now if you want to delete all documents, you either need to delete the collection (which could mean code changes to point to a new ID), or you need to write a script to delete every document one by one which is time consuming.

Increase document size limit for WD

Currently maximum document size, which can be processed by WD for CP4D is 32Mb. It is very small size limit considering any document which may have embedded images can be much larger. Even WEX limits were higher (up to 128Mb for WEX AC). Please co...

Allow an optional "Callback URL" in "Add Document" Discovery API request

We, frequently, write services to poll Discovery for a document's status after we POST a document for ingestion. If, within the request body, we could include a callback URL for Discovery to asynchronously POST a completion message to, we could cu...

Increase number of synonyms limit for query expansion

Query expansion via synonyms is a very powerful yet easy to configure feature. However, the current limitation of 500 entries across all expanded_terms arrays is too low for most use cases. For enterprise corpora covering a multitude of topics, w...

Support WKS subtypes

When uploading a trained WKS model as machine learning enrichment, only entities are detected and indexed, but not subtypes (on WD for CP4D).Please also consider supporting subtypes in the planned real-time NLP feature.

Passages and relevancy training

Passages and relevancy training are very important features of WDS to provide short and accurate answers to questions. But as relevancy training works only at document level, and the ranking of documents and passages are different, the value of th...

Allow to query a collection through a POST call

Currently, querying a collection can only be done through a GET call (https://www.ibm.com/watson/developercloud/discovery/api/v1/#query-collection). This is an issue when the query parameters (actual natural language query, filters, passages setti...

Allow user defined dictionary for Kuromoji tokenization use under Japanese

Requesting to allow users to define their list of user_dictionary words for the purpose of Kuromoji’s tokenizer. I understand that WDS uses Kuromoji underneath for Japanese language. A key function of Kuromoji as the morphological analyzer for Jap...
