Great search is all about delivering the right results. Today’s search engines are expected to be smart, understanding the nuances of natural language queries, as well as each user’s preferences and context. AI-Powered Search teaches you the latest machine learning techniques to create search engines that continuously learn from your users and your content, to drive more domain-aware and intelligent search. Written by Trey Grainger, the Chief Algorithms Officer at Lucidworks, this authoritative book empowers you to create and deploy search engines that take advantage of user interactions and the hidden semantic relationships in your content to constantly get smarter and automatically deliver better, more relevant search experiences.

about the technology

The search box has become the de facto user interface for modern data-driven applications. Users expect software to fully understand their search inputs, context, and activity, and to return the right answers every time. Fortunately, you no longer need a massive team manually adjusting relevancy parameters to deliver optimal search results. Using the power of AI, you can develop search solutions that dynamically learn from your content and users, constantly getting smarter and delivering better answers.

about the book

AI-Powered Search is an authoritative guide to applying leading-edge data science techniques to search. It teaches you how to build search engines that automatically understand the intention of a query in order to deliver significantly better results. Author Trey Grainger helped develop numerous algorithms now transforming search, and is an expert on leading techniques for crowdsourced relevancy and semantic search. Working through code in interactive notebooks, you’ll deploy intelligent search systems that deliver real-time personalization and contextual understanding of each user, domain, and query through a self-learning search platform that can tune its own results automatically.
