Search as you think

Everything you need to build AI-powered search at scale. NeuralSearch combines Algolia’s award-winning full-text keyword search engine with vector understanding into a single API.

Neural Hashing

Algolia NeuralSearch is built on a new type of AI engine that uses neural hashes to compress and drastically speed up each and every query. It's much faster to compute hashed similarity than standard vector similarities and returns results in milliseconds.

Natural language understanding

Your customers can type in just about anything to get great results thanks to natural language processing with universal language support.


Automatic vectorization

You don’t need to hire a full data science team. Best practices and models for content understanding are built into Algolia NeuralSearch.

Adaptive learning

AI adaptive learning

Results are re-ranked and improved automatically and continuously over time, so you have more time to spend on other parts of your business.

Query suggestions

We were thrilled to see above ~65 percent drop in zero search results and up to 17 percent uplift in conversion rates. These results, despite only sending a portion of our query traffic to Algolia NeuralSearch over a four-week period, exceeded our expectations.

When we implemented Algolia NeuralSearch, the overall results have been amazing and have included a 9 percent increase in clickthrough rates and a 9 percent increase in the conversion rate. Our merchandisers are spending less time on manual tasks.

Algolia NeuralSearch FAQ

  • Algolia NeuralSearch offers several benefits. 

    • It offers better precision (accuracy) and recall (completeness) of each and every query, and it virtually eliminates null-results.
    • It helps optimize “long tail” queries to drive to a significant uplift in clicks, conversion rates, sales, and customer experience. 
    • It continuously and automatically adapts to changing trends — such as new queries and purchase trends — so you never miss an opportunity.
    • It reduces your team’s workload. Because NeuralSearch understands natural language, it eliminates the need to create relevance rules, synonyms, or stuff your site with more keywords. 
    • It provides a better end-user experience which drives more engagement, clicks, and conversions.
  • Both solutions use large language models (LLMs) to provide results, but they solve very different problems. 

    • ChatGPT is a generative model that predicts the next most likely word/s based on the input context and underlying training. 
    • Algolia NeuralSearch retrieves the best search results from your search index based on your clearly-defined business outcomes. 

    For example, in the context of ecommerce search, an AI chatbot can act like a virtual sales assistant to discuss what you’re looking for. With AI search, it’s as if the sales assistant is ranking the top items based on personalization, rules, merchandising, top performing results, past purchase or search history, or other factors you’ve identified as important.
