Adopted by hundreds of organizations and institutions worldwide, Milvus empowers applications in a variety of fields, including image processing, computer vision, natural language processing, voice recognition, recommender systems, drug discovery, etc.
The demand for processing unstructured data such as pictures, videos, voices, and text is continuously increasing with the emergence of emerging applications such as smart cities, short videos, personalized product recommendations, and visual product search. The most mainstream method for processing these unstructured data is to use artificial intelligence technology (deep learning algorithms) to extract the features of these unstructured data, and use feature vectors to represent them, and then calculate and retrieve these feature vectors to achieve non-unstructured data. Analysis and retrieval of structured data.
Milvus is designed to facilitate users to easily calculate and retrieve feature vectors. It supports rich feature vector indexing algorithms and the scheduling of heterogeneous computing resources. It has a complete user interface, data management components, and graphical management tools. Cloud-native The design concept allows Milvus to easily achieve horizontal expansion and high availability based on K8S. Since the product has been open sourced, it has received recognition and support from a large number of users. At present, the global community scale exceeds 3,000 people and there are more than 50 enterprise users.
With the optimization of vector retrieval algorithms and the integration of heterogeneous computing resources, Milvus can provide stable and high-performance vector retrieval support for enterprise applications. In most scenarios, when the Top 1 recall rate is guaranteed to be 100%, and the Top100 recall rate is not less than 95%, the retrieval time for millions of data scales is 0.01 seconds, and the retrieval time for 100 million data scales is 0.1 seconds. Retrieval time of billions of data scale seconds.
Milvus can support various applications in the field of computer vision with picture and video processing as its core, especially the efficient processing of ultra-large-scale data, making Milvus widely used in the field of computer vision.
Search by image
Product search by product
Vectorization of semantic features for words, sentences, articles, etc. is becoming the mainstream technology for natural language processing. Semantic analysis by comparing the distance of semantic feature vectors is being adopted by a large number of semantic analysis solutions. Usability, has been widely used in related fields.
Corpus analysis and recommendation
There are also a lot of vector calculation scenarios in the traditional data processing field. Using traditional calculation methods requires a lot of computing power. With advanced algorithms, Milvus can increase the vector data processing capacity by at least two orders of magnitude with the same computing power resources.
Molecular structural similarity analysis
Molecular pharmacological analysis
Virtual screening of drug molecules
Using deep learning models to analyze and process audio data can greatly improve the accuracy of speech recognition, and its core is to vectorize related audio slices and judge the meaning of its expression through the calculation of vector distance. Therefore, Milvus also have rich applications in speech , Music and other audio data processing fields.
