What's new in Policy Insights

Feature enhancements in this release are designed to improve how you search for, view, and work with policy documents.

Snippets to improve navigation in PDF viewer

With this release, IBM Watson can extract text snippets from the document that are relevant to your search query. The text snippets are displayed in relevance order in the Snippets pane. The thumbnails highlight the page in the PDF that you are currently viewing so that you can see the text display in context.

In the Snippets pane, the following icons indicate whether the text snippet is found in the document. If found, you can open the page where each reference is located.

Predictive next-word suggestions to improve search query and results

In this release, when you type 3 or more characters, a predictive next-word model is in use that processes and returns suggestions for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th words that you enter. Predictive suggestions are not provided for the fifth and subsequent words that you enter in an input query.

Examples follow for illustrative purposes:

After you select a suggestion from the suggested list options (10 max), the entire content of the query input field is replaced with the suggestion and you can add more words. Pressing Enter or Search runs the search for the selected input query.

Known Issues
  • (4099) In the unlikely event that you attempt to access malware-infected policy documents by viewing an infected PDF, a warning message is expected to display onscreen. This anti-malware messaging does not currently display. A blank page displays when you click the View Document link.
