  • This is a collection of 324K HN comments during the month of Oct 2022.
  • The data is indexed in Typesense using the new built-in embedding generation (using S-BERT).
  • When a search query is typed in "Semantic Search" mode, Typesense automatically generates embeddings for the query using S-BERT, then does a nearest-neighbor search and returns the closest matches.
  • When a search query is typed in "Hybrid" mode, Typesense does both a regular keyword search and semantic search and combines the results using Rank Fusion.
