Solr Highlighting at Full Speed
Searching over a large corpus of legal documents brings about a number of unique challenges in search. In legal search, recall matters. Users often enter broad queries and leverage digests to help them determine the relevancy of a result before committing to reading a long document. This has made highlighting quality and speed with minimal memory use a key requirement for Bloomberg Law. In this talk, attendees will learn about Bloomberg Law's efforts to improve highlighting performance dramatically via the introduction of a new highlighter for Solr that uses your index to the best of its advantage.
