What Will You Learn?

Finding metrics that describe performance can unlock valuable insights in the field of Data Science.  It can be helpful to visualize the distribution of these metrics and to understand how segments of metrics vary with each other. It is needed here to define categories such as age or gender that can divide the data, which is a limitation of segmenting analytics. Vector Search uses semantics to analyze data, and does not have the limitation of requiring  symbolic tags. In this talk, you will learn how to use Vector Search as a Data Scientist. By means of real Youtube and Twitter data, you’ll see how easy it is to utilize this yourself with the Vector Search engine Weaviate.
