Building Modern Search Pipelines with Haystack, Large Language Models and Hybrid Retrieval


In this talk we navigate through the latest buzz around semantic search and separate the noise from the meaningful advancements. Is dense retrieval better than BM25’s keyword search? Do large language models outperform smaller transformers? How well do the models generalize to industry corpora? How can we leverage Question Answering?
We will benchmark different methods, share best practices from industry use cases and show how you can use the open source framework Haystack to build, test and deploy stellar search pipelines easily yourself.
