Integrating Semantic Search with Typesense
Krish wants to integrate a semantic search functionality with typesense but struggles with the limitations. Kishore Nallan provides resources, clarifications and workarounds to the raised issues.
Hybrid Search Distance Threshold Issue
Anish has an issue with search results not respecting the vector distance threshold when using hybrid search. Jason explains additional fields cause `vector_distance` to only apply to vector search results and suggests opening a feature request on GitHub.
Vector Search Filter and Cosine Similarity in Typesense
LT asked about vector search result filtering and cosine similarity. Kishore Nallan explained how cosine distance is related to similarity and shared plans to add a threshold restriction option.
