// Deep Learning for Search Training
BERT and Transformers

Recent advances in information retrieval have shown promising performance gains by utilizing large-scale pre-trained transformer-based language models like BERT.
This training gives you a better understanding of how BERT works and how you can integrate it with your search architecture to improve your relevance.


• Basic understanding of Search Engines and Machine Learning


• How to use pre-trained language models and fine tune them for your specific use case


• Technical Managers
• Technical Team Leaders
• Data scientists
• Software Engineers
• Developers

Based on experience with leading companies including

Our Trainer

Alessandro Benedetti


Alessandro has been involved in designing and developing search-relevant solutions from 2010.
Over the years he has worked on various projects, with various open source technologies aiming to build search solutions able to satisfy the user information needs, often integrating such solutions with machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies.

Full Program

  • A bit of history (challenges with exact matching, Deep Learning, semantic search)
  • BERT and transformers
  • Model fine-tuning (pairwise learning, Margin-MSE aka DistilBERT)
  • Hands on Exercises: Fine-tuning with pairwise learning
  • Hands on Exercises: let’s start generating and using word embeddings
  • Hands on Exercises: let’s use BERT
It was a jump into the cold water but was definitetly the right thing to do for me. The training helped me a lot to get an orientation where information retrieval and search are going. Antonio is a great source of knowledge and has a lot of experience of what works and what does not. Highly recommended!
