Complete Tutorial On Txtai: An AI-Powered Search Engine (Analytics India)

Analytics India: Complete Tutorial On Txtai: An AI-Powered Search Engine. “Searching is the most basic functionality that is seen in almost all applications. But it can be challenging when you have a large amount of data or documents and you need faster results. This is where natural language processing can be useful to us. With the development of new models in NLP, quicker computation and more accurate results are possible. One such development is a library called txtai. This enables a smarter way to apply natural language processing on search bars. In this article, we will see the different applications of the txtai and implement them in Python.”
