Apache Solr Neural Search Tutorial

The vector-based approach is already widely used in search and is finally available in Apache Solr from version 9.0.
In this training, you will learn how to leverage this new Apache Solr feature to index and search vectors and perform a full end-to-end neural search with real examples to improve your search experience!

I recently took the course on Apache Solr Neural Search and I must say it was really good. Alessandro and Ilaria were very knowledgeable and presented the material in a clear and concise manner. They went over the contents at a reasonable pace giving enough time for questions at the end of each section. The training was extremely helpful in understanding the concepts and implementation of vector-based search in Solr.
I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to avail of Solr neural search capabilities to improve search experience.
