Vectara Generative AI Use Cases

Conversational AI (Chatbots)

Vectara’s superior cross-language understanding of 100+ language and dialects ensures that conversational AI can go many layers deep and wide.

Question Answering

Vectara’s industry-leading retrieval surfaces the most relevant information for both semantic and exact match search.

Semantic App Search

Vectara’s hybrid search finds the most relevant products, support cases, and documents quickly delivering answers, not results.

Research and Analysis

Get summarized answers with citations that drive data-driven decisions (pharma, legal, FinServe) turning hours of research into seconds.

Why Vectara?

Developers choose Vectara over open source LLM frameworks because Vectara takes care of the embeddings, the vector database, and offloads a lot of the complexity workload from developers' plates.-

Superior Language Understanding

Vectara is truly language-agnostic. Ask a question in English about papers written in Mandarin or Arabic. Vectara instantly retrieves the information and prepares it for translation.

RAG-as-a-Service

Have conversations with your data. Ask a question, and Vectara gives you summarized answers based entirely on your inputs with zero hallucinations.

End-to-End Platform

Employ an end-to-end configured platform with easy ingest and API operation. Harness multiple LLMs for language detection, retrieval, and reranking.

Best Hybrid Search Core

Vectara delivers dramatically improved relevance over a broad range of content with no retraining. How we do it: pioneering approaches to NLP using zero-shot AI models.

One platform. Any product. Many uses.

If your users have questions, we have the answer. Regardless of product, use case, or  language, Vectara delivers the most relevant and dependable answer via our “Grounded Generation” technology.

Best in class retrieval

Hybrid search - large language model (LLM) based retrieval and boolean exact match to answer your users’ questions first

Vectara doesn’t just summarize individual documents, but helps answer your users’ questions  by looking across them all before answering

Ease of use - APIs

APIs are designed for consumption by application developers and data engineers who wish to include elements of a search pipeline within their site or application.

Custom dimensions allow developers to attach key data attributes that could be relevant in scoring results.

Grounded genration

Addresses the main drawbacks from using pure generative AI

Relevant facts from only this user’s data are retrieved

Relevant facts are summarized into a response

Trust & Security

Executives know they need to start integrating GenAI into their products, and developers and product managers are ready, but trust and security concerns cause trepidation . At Vectara, we've built our platform with this top of mind from day one.

Data encrypted at every stage using military-grade encryption algorithm.

Robust role-based access control available. Access granted via API keys or OAuth 2.0

SOC 2-compliant & independently certified

All user data isolated for maximum security. Data can be further segregated into individual corpora for logical separation within an account.

Customers can employ their own encryption keys to hide account data even from Vectara's engineering team.

All data is encrypted both in transit and at rest using military-grade encryption algorithm

Robust role-based access control (RBAC) is available and access can be granted with either API keys or OAuth 2.0

SOC 2 compliant & independently certified

All user data is logically separated from one another, to ensure maximum security. Data can even be further segregated into individual corpora to logically separate within an account

For maximum paranoia: Customers can bring their own encryption keys to encrypt their account data so that even Vectara engineering team cannot gain access to your data
