Objective is a Multimodal search API that works for you, not the other way around. Objective understands your data & your users, enabling natural and relevant results. Even when your data is inconsistent or incomplete. (Aren't we all?)

Objective understands human language, and ‘sees’ inside images. Your web & mobile app search can understand what users mean, and even relate that to meaning it sees in images.

Objective understands the relationships between huge text articles and the parts of content in each, letting you build context-rich text search experiences.

Best in class search comes from layering all the best search techniques. It’s not about any single approach. It’s about a curated, tight top-to-bottom integration of all the best search & retrieval techniques in the world.

“You can only do so much with manual tagging and scrubbing of results. Implementing semantic search in-house was taking very long. We saw a demo of Objective Search and it was night and day! This partnership will significantly accelerate our data science roadmap.”

Zack Onisko, CEO @ 

Ship today, not “Q4ish”. With SDKs in some of our favorite languages, and a RESTful API built for massive scale.

The search copilot you never knew was possible. Objective watches your user’s search queries and finds optimizations based on your goals.

“yellow rain coat”
in Multimodal Index idx_cFSueLlzKhK2

COPILOT:
The product description ('detail_desc') indicates that the coat is unlined and in a felted weave which does not match the typical characteristics of a rain coat, which is typically lined and made from a waterproof or water-resistant material.

COPILOT:
The search result is not related to the user's query of 'yellow rain coat' intended for human use. Despite the color and raincoat functionality matching, the product is specifically a 'dog coat' as stated in the product name and detail description.
