About the Session

The Hierarchical Navigable Small World (HNSW) is one of the most popular graph-based indices for nearest neighbor search. Join us for a fireside chat with Yury Malkov, as we discuss how he ended up developing this critical method of high-dimensional data analysis. We’ll explore how he got started in computer science and where he sees the future of vector search and LLMs. You’ll even get a chance to ask Yury questions at the end of the chat, you won’t want to miss it!

Topics covered:

  • Why HNSW and other graph indexes are great tools for vector search
  • What is the future of vector search?
  • Thoughts on the proliferation and increasing importance of LLMs as it relates to vector data
