Deep Learning for Search

Book Description

Deep Learning for Search teaches you to improve your search results with neural networks. You’ll review how DL relates to search basics like indexing and ranking. Then, you’ll walk through in-depth examples to upgrade your search with DL techniques using Apache Lucene and Deeplearning4j. As the book progresses, you’ll explore advanced topics like searching through images, translating user queries, and designing search engines that improve as they learn!
