Talk Abstract:

Elasticsearch: Vector and Hybrid Search - Kent Brake, Senior Principal Solutions Architect 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
