Title Precision and Power: Semantic Search in Modern Information Retrieval

Coordinator: Dr. Biswanath Dutta

Speaker: Shubham Mishra


The field of LIS is undergoing a significant transformation with the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Traditional keyword-based search techniques are giving way to more advanced and intuitive approaches, with semantic search emerging as a frontrunner.

Semantic search is a paradigm shift from the rigid and often imprecise keyword-based searches of the past. It leverages the power of NLP to understand the context, intent, and meaning behind user queries, enabling a more natural and conversational interaction with information resources.

Ontology and knowledge graphs play a pivotal role by organizing and connecting information in a structured and meaningful manner. The seminar delves into the mechanics of semantic search, showcasing how it enhances the accuracy and relevance of search results while reducing the cognitive load on users.
