Welcome to the documentation homepage for Vectara, an end-to-end platform for product builders to embed powerful generative AI capabilities into applications with extraordinary results. Vectara offers significant improvements over traditional searches by understanding the context and meaning of your data. This revolutionary technology enables Vectara to drive insights and provide more accurate responses to user queries, assisting decision-making processes. User data remains secure because Vectara never trains on customer data.
The Future of Search is Here
The Vectara team envisions a future where generative AI powers every application to deliver contextually accurate responses and give the right answers and actions. Vectara is built on a solid hybrid search core to enable better generative outcomes. Traditional search technologies focus on keywords, which limit their ability to understand complex queries. Vectara deploys advanced zero-shot models and conversational search capabilities to understand, interpret, and respond to user queries with remarkable precision.
Vectara summarizes search results on complex queries while providing factual citations from your data. Vectara provides the best hybrid search core and superior language understanding for ingestion and retrieval. Vectara can become your answer engine.
Developer-focused, API-first, Secure
Designed for developers with an API-first approach, Vectara is the optimal choice to integrate generative AI search into your applications. This complete end-to-end platform provides easy ingestion and simple APIs. The Vectara Generative AI platform enables developers with the flexibility to build a wide range of applications with powerful search experiences.
The Vectara platform never trains on customer data which enables businesses to embed generative AI capabilities without the risk of data or privacy violations. Vectara provides support for customer-managed keys, encryption at rest and during transit, client-configurable data retention, and more.
Solve the Hallucination Problem
AI content generators often create hallucinations – false information outside of the raw, factual data - they make stuff up. These hallucinations lead to inaccurate and misleading responses Vectara addresses this problem through Grounded Generation, meaning it grounds the search results in the uploaded data. By focusing on facts and reducing hallucinations, Vectara enhances trust in AI-powered decision making.
Use Vectara to search across multiple languages, eliminating language barriers and enabling users to find what they need, regardless of the language they use. This cross-language approach provides a seamless search experience for users around the world. The best answer may be written in German but a user asked the question in Spanish.
The Vectara platform is more than just an AI product. It is a pioneer in the realm of neural search, leading the way to harness the power of your data. Vectara wants to transform the way developers interact with data and unlock a world of insights at their fingertips. Welcome to the future of information interaction!
