Machine Learning Jobs

Fusion AI provides these job types to perform machine learning tasks.

Signals analysis

These jobs analyze a collection of signals in order to perform query rewriting, signals aggregation, or experiment analysis.

  • Ground Truth

    Estimate ground truth queries using click signals and query signals, with document relevance per query determined using a click/skip formula.

Query rewriting

These jobs produce data that can be used for query rewriting or to inform updates to the synonyms.txt file.

  • Head/Tail Analysis

    Perform head/tail analysis of queries from collections of raw or aggregated signals, to identify underperforming queries and the reasons.

  • Token and Phrase Spell Correction

    Detect misspellings in queries or documents using the numbers of occurrences of words and phrases.

Signals aggregation

Experiment analysis

  • Ranking Metrics

    Calculate relevance metrics (nDCG and so on) by replaying ground truth queries against catalog data using variants from an experiment.

  • SQL-Based Experiment Metric (deprecated)

    This job is created by an experiment in order to calculate an objective.

    This job is deprecated as of Fusion AI 4.0.2.

Content-based recommenders

Content-based recommenders create matrices of similar items based on their content.

Content analysis

Data ingest

  • Parallel Bulk Loader

    The Parallel Bulk Loader (PBL) job enables bulk ingestion of structured and semi-structured data from big data systems, NoSQL databases, and common file formats like Parquet and Avro.
