Encores? – Going beyond matching and ranking of search results

Most of our search development work focuses on retrieving the right documents and showing them to the user in the best possible order. Additional features like spelling correction or auto-completion receive less attention and they are often neglected. We think that for the user, these features can have a major impact on the success of search – they are not encores!

In this workshop participants will learn how they can build features such as facets, auto-completion and auto-suggest, spelling correction and query relaxation for e-commerce search using the Solr search engine. We will also discuss the intuition and challenges behind these features as a starting point for participants to implement solutions beyond out-of-the-box components.
