IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Clients

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

If you have not registered on this portal please register at . To complete registration you will need to open the email you will receive from Aha to confirm your identity.

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 offering manager 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.

Search documents by keywords/entity/relation

Ability to search document by keywords, entity names, relation names, etc is required.

During annotations, there is a case where annotators want to see how they annotated the documents that are similar to what annotators are annotating now, or a case where same word came up in a different document and want to see how they annotated that word then. In such cases it would be very convenient to be able to search the documents by keywords, entity names, relation names, etc. Also the human annotation work will be more efficient.

    Thanks for them comment. I understand that looking at other human annotator's annotation will introduce bias.

    What about searching within your own annotated documents? I want to check the consistency of annotation within the documents that I annotated. To make sure that I didn't miss anything, didn't annotated words differently, and so on. When annotating many many documents, it's difficult to check....

    This enhancement request goes against the Knowledge Studio methodology and will introduce inter-annotator bias. Knowledge Studio isolates the work of the individual human annotators (HA) on purpose.

    The proper way to train the human annotators is to have clearly documented IAA (inter-annotator agreement). The IAA should not only list the Type System entries, but should also provide examples of proper annotation of the TS mentions.

    The other tool for educating the HAs is the discussions that happen around adjudication (conflict resolution.)

IBM's success depends on gathering feedback from customers like yourself. Aha Ideas Portal is the third party tool through which IBM Offering Managers gather feedback from customers such as yourself.
IBM is a global organization with business processes, management structures, technical systems and service provider networks that cross borders. As such, the information collected through Aha Ideas Portal (Customer Name, Customer Email Address) will be stored by them in the United States, and handled only as per IBM's instructions and policies. Your data (Name and Email Address) will NOT be shared with other IBM customers.
In order to safeguard your information in Aha, do not leave your workstation unattended while using this application, log off after using it, and print only if necessary. If you need to make a hardcopy, remember to pick up the print-out immediately, keep it under lock, and destroy it immediately when no longer needed.
NOTICE TO EU RESIDENTS: per EU Data Protection Policy, if you wish to remove your personal information from the IBM ideas portal, please login to the ideas portal using your previously registered information then change your email to "anonymous@euprivacy.out" and first name to "anonymous" and last name to "anonymous". This will ensure that IBM will not send any emails to you about all idea submissions
