Rockset extends its real-time analytics database to support machine learning with new vector search capabilities.
In this tech talk, Rockset VP of Engineering Louis Brandy shares his experience building spam fighting systems, including Sigma at Facebook, which had a high reliance on real-time data for machine learning.
Louis is joined by Senior Product Manager John Solitario who explains how Rockset fits into the larger data stack for real-time machine learning, the latest support for vector search and how customers are using Rockset ML capabilities in production.
We’ll cover how Rockset optimizes for real-time machine learning in the following ways:
- Real-time streaming data for machine learning
- Turn events into real-time features: Transform and index streaming data to generate real-time features
- Fast search: Use Rockset’s Converged Index with metadata filtering to deliver fast, efficient results
- Vector search capabilities: Support for distance functions including dot product, cosine similarity and Euclidean distance for known nearest neighbor (KNN) search.
