Elasticsearch: Vector and Hybrid Search - Alexis Roberson, Developer Advocate at Elastic

Search is not just traditional TF/IDF anymore: the current trend of machine learning and models has opened another dimension for search. This talk gives an overview of:

  • “Classic” search and its limitations
  • What is a model and how you can use it
  • How to use vector search or hybrid search in Elasticsearch
  • Where OpenAI’s ChatGPT or similar LLMs come into play with Elastic

Logs, Elastic & Cribl…Oh my! - Sheldon Carmichael, Information Security Architect at Sally Beauty

An overview of a journey to take in over 9TB/day of Endpoint data into Elastic for Threat Detection & Hunting. Going from 7 days of retention to over 30 days of retention through data reduction, data normalization & Elastic Deployment optimization.
