Challenge

Our client, a leading publisher needed to make their data easily accessible to users via an easy-to-use search function. For this, they needed a robust, self-learning information retrieval platform which would ingest over 300 data sources and make it available in a user-friendly manner.

Solution

Infosys leveraged its AI platform NIA, to develop a stable architecture design and implemented an Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) compliant data harvester. This enabled the ingestion of data at scale using a variety of open source and AWS tools. Search functionality was enhanced to include advanced NLP and machine learning techniques, along with automated ‘type-ahead’ features.
