IBM Offering Manager Anish Mathur explains the new Passage Retrieval and Relevancy Training beta capabilities of Watson Discovery Service, two tools that enable you to build applications that shrink the time it takes users to get the information they are looking for.
Relevancy training can scale search relevancy by using domain expertise to train Discovery on the best ranking of results. It allows developers and subject matter experts to work together to teach the system to find signals in the way documents and queries are related and bring the most relevant documents to the top of results. Developers can also use the module to further customize responses using a machine learning model.
Passage retrieval lets you find information within documents that is relevant to your query. It can dynamically select snippets from within larger documents based on an input query to present users with easy-to-display-and-consume results.
Both of these capabilities allow developers to improve the user experience by displaying answers to queries without any additional configuration or special processing.
