Search— A Gentle Introduction

The ability to search the entire web in less than a second for whatever we fancy knowing is one of the greatest achievements of recent history. But how does it work? What are its building blocks?

In this three part series, I will:

  • Pt 1. Provide a gentle introduction to Search using both Google and Elasticsearch as examples
  • Pt 2. We will explain some **state-of-the-art NLP techniques, **compare results to traditional approaches and discuss pros and cons
  • Pt 3. Provide a hacker’s guide to building your own search engine with Elasticsearch engine containing 1 million news headlines & employing state-of-the-art NLP for enhanced semantic searches…
