Searching big data is complex. Traditional keyword-based search methods are poorly suited for processing and analyzing unstructured data such as images, text, video, and audio that do not follow a predefined model. Vector similarity search utilizes deep learning methods and ANN (approximate nearest neighbor) algorithms to provide faster, more accurate search capable of processing trillion-scale unstructured datasets. This talk focuses on vector indexing, which plays a major role in accelerating time-consuming queries on large datasets. We will cover how various index types can be used in Milvus, a popular open-source vector similarity search engine, as well as Milvus v1.0 features and future plans for the platform.
