Knowledge graphs are increasingly becoming important in the AI world as an enabling technology for data integration and analytics, semantic search and question answering, and other cognitive applications. However, developing and maintaining large knowledge graphs in a manual way is too expensive and time consuming. To accelerate things, methods and techniques from the areas of information extraction and natural language processing (NLP) can be very helpful.

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.
