One of AWS' growing list of ML services. This one focused on search.
If you’ve ever had to work with any large-scale content repository, you know the pain of needing to tag and index it for search. Even more elusive is creating a user experience that satisfies the average person. AWS Kendra aims to provide an ML-based search platform for unstructured data.
Intranet Search Engine
I’m old enough to remember when Google sold an appliance to bring google search to your intranet. Kendra can be a drop-in replacement for your current search engine.
Video and Audio Search
If you combine Amazon Transcribe with Kendra, you can create a search platform for video and audio.
The previous examples have been front-end search applications. Another use is for integration into some backend functions. You could use Kendra against a growing data lake to perform contextual-based searches to kick off some serverless functions.
