Presentation Title:

Improving Retrieval Quality for Text Search

Presentation Summary:

Atom icon for The AI Conference 2023, a groundbreaking two-day event on AGI, LLMs, Infrastructure, Alignment, AI Startups, and Neural Architectures.To capture the meaning and context of human language, semantic search through vectors can significantly improve the relevance of search results, leading to a better understanding of user queries. However, organizations need significant expertise and effort beyond typical software productization to achieve satisfactory information retrieval quality. This expertise includes annotating a sufficient number of queries and maintaining the models or relying on third-party models adapted to their specific domain. 

Brain icon for The AI Conference 2023, a groundbreaking two-day event on AGI, LLMs, Infrastructure, Alignment, AI Startups, and Neural Architectures.Recognizing these challenges, we will discuss semantic search with dense and sparse vectors in this talk. And why you still need lexical search with hybrid retrieval for specific scenarios.
