How to do Semantic Search with JavaScript?

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Semantic Search API in 5 minutes using JavaScript. Eden AI provides an easy and developer-friendly API that allows you to search information into texts.

What is Semantic Search?

Semantic Search API uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning techniques to understand the intent of the user and the context of the query, and then returns results that are semantically related to the query. It can provide a more effective result than traditional keyword-based search methods by focusing on concepts and ideas rather than basic matching keywords.
