A few days before Haystack Europe we’re very happy to be speaking at the Berlin Search Technology Meetup.

Doug Turnbull will present “Conversion Models: A Systematic Method of Building Learning to Rank Training Data” - a system for turning any search analytics into robust judgments and training data. Because, after all, there is no AI-based Search without good training data!

Next up is René Kriegler talking about “Query relaxation - a rewriting technique between search and recommendations”. René will describe his experiments with different approaches to query relaxation, and a solution in the context of e-commerce search which is based on using Word2Vec embeddings.

Plus the usual Q&A and networking.

Doors open at 6.30 pm with talks starting at 7 sharp, free snacks & drinks thanks to sponsors Soundcloud.
