PostgreSQL Semantic Search
presented by QUAN-HA LE and Mainur Rahman
Web search engines often federate many user queries to relevant structured databases. For example, a recruitment-related query might be federated to a jobseekers-and-employers database containing their resumes and skills. The relevant structured data items are then returned to the user along with web search results. Though each structured database is searched in isolation, the search often prod...more 13:10 - 14:00 Willow dev
