Introduction to the Weaviate open source vector search engine - Bob van Luijt

Weaviate is a cloud-native, real-time vector search engine (aka neural search engine or deep search engine). There are modules for specific use cases such as semantic search, plugins to integrate Weaviate in any application of your choice, and a console to visualize your data. During this session, we will go over a Weaviate demo including core features such as:
- The GraphQL interface
- Vectorization modules (Transformers, contextionary)
- Question answering module
- Combining vector and scalar search
We will be going all the way from installation to querying and from schema creation to data vectorization. At the end of the event, you will have enough information to start working with your own Weaviate instance.

Bob van Luijt is a technology entrepreneur, technologist and new media artist from the Netherlands. He is the co-founder of SeMI Technologies, consultancy firm Kubrickology and the chairman of the Creative Software Foundation. You'll have a chance to ask Bob questions after his talk.
