Talk Abstract 1:

In this talk we’ll cover the basics of search relevancy in elasticsearch from how relevancy is calculated and modeled to modifying query structure, setting up analyzer chains and how to measure incremental improvements. The talk will highlight several real world relevancy scenarios encountered in the consulting work at KMW Technology, a leading provider of search professional services to major organizations.
