Meet Tencent AI Labs @ Sclable AI Hub Knowledge Share

On Sept 20th, Dr. Han Xiao, Engineering Lead Tencent AI Lab, will be a guest at the office of Business Accelerator Sclable. Dr. Han Xiao will talk about the current open source AI project at Tencent AI Lab, GNES, Generic Neural Elastic Search, a cloud-coded semantic search system based on a deep neural network. GNES provides a comprehensive index and semantic search for text-to-text, image-to-image, video-to-video and arbitrary content forms.

In the lecture Dr. Han Xiao will discuss the most important design principles behind GNES. "I would also like to share our understanding of a generic information retrieval system for the AI/ML/NLP/CV community and how it can differ from the traditional search system. I will also show how to build an elastic semantic search system with PyTorch transformers and Flair in 3 minutes or less."
