An incredible and understated effect of AI search is typo tolerance.
LLM are very strong in “understanding” the meaning of a sentence, hence being resilient to typo errors.

– Plain classic search without any tuning:
– Vector search with Weaviate OpenAI embeddings:
Not only the vector search fixes the typo error, but also returns great results.
