How to Build a Question Answering Application with Haystack in 30 Minutes


Are you planning to build your own question answering application but don’t know where to start? In this talk, Julian Risch will walk you through the steps of creating a demo around public health data using the open source NLP framework Haystack. The key building blocks of Haystack support a variety of semantic search pipelines, and he will explain how they can be flexibly combined to enable different use cases. An outlook on what could come next, once you have a running demo, will conclude the presentation.
