Learning To Rank -
How to build your training set and train your model

With LTR becoming more and more popular, organizations struggle with the problem of how to collect and structure relevance signals necessary to train their ranking models. 

This training is a technical guide to explore and master various techniques to generate your training set(s) correctly and efficiently. 
Expect to learn how to : 

    • model and collect the necessary feedback from the users (implicit or explicit) 

    • calculate for each training sample a relevance label that is meaningful and not ambiguous (Click Through Rate, Sales Rate …) 

    • transform the raw data collected in an effective training set (in the numerical vector format most of the LTR training libraries expect) 

    • use open source libraries to train your model

Deep Learning for Search - Vector-Based Search

Deep Learning can be used to produce a vector representation of both the query and the documents in a corpus of information.
A Dense vector describes information as an array of elements, each of them explicitly defined.

Various Deep Learning models such as BERT are able to encode textual information as dense vectors, to be used for Dense Retrieval strategies.
This training explores approaches in sparse and dense vector retrieval, including approximate strategies that bring great performance benefits.
