Today, with the ever more long documents and multimedia data, finding the right information is more important and challenging than ever. The rise of deep learning has ushered in a new era of “neural search”. However, building a neural search system is non-trivial work for many engineers. The main challenges are: (1) long dev cycle due to the complex tech stack (2) poor scalability due to the glued-architecture (3) strong requirements on the domain knowledge to fine-tune the results. With Jina (https://github.com/jina-ai/jina), engineers can quickly build up a search engine powered by state-of-the-art AI in just minutes. In this talk, I will introduce the design philosophy and the key features of Jina; and showcase how Jina bootstraps a QA semantic search system and a short-video search system in just lines of code.
