Increasingly Solr and Elasticsearch teams rely on machine learning to solve their thorniest issues. Learning to Rank applies machine learning directly to search relevance. With the right plumbing in place, Learning to Rank can answer questions with remarkable accuracy, getting to the heart of what user's want.
