Art and Science Come Together When Mastering Relevance Ranking
For most search based products, more relevant results mean a more valuable product. Getting this right is usually not something obvious. Within the world of Search, engineering relevance has become a profession in itself.
Solr comes out of the box with a scoring algorithm which is sophisticated but rarely good enough. Fortunately you can break it down and build it up again with different blocks.

This is a session where we demonstrate how to get an absolute grip on the relevance calculation of search results. We'll show the science of analyzing and manipulating the scoring algorithm and we'll show the art of shaping the score to your needs.
