Semantic Search in Self-Service Portals

Semantic Search

In Self-Service Portal users are able to search for a limited set of Fact Sheets from the workspace. While the native search is already very powerful, we added semantic search on top.

Semantic Search

Semantic search denotes search with meaning, as distinguished from lexical search where the search engine looks for literal matches of the query words or variants of them, without understanding the overall meaning of the query, see e.g. https://www.nowpublishers.com/article/Details/INR-032.

Practical Example:
If you search for e.g. Google Chrome, a normal search will retrieve similar results that use the words Google or Chrome or parts of it, e.g. Google AdVerts could be a legal result.

If you search for e.g. Google Chrome in a semantic search, you will also find other browsers like Firefox or Edge, since they are semantically (by meaning) similar to Google Chrome although the results don't have any words in common.
