Table of contents :

The image shows two sets of results from the same WooCommerce demo contents.

— Image search https://lnkd.in/ez_zrH95 —
Image search is powered by Weaviate‘s CLIP embedding module https://lnkd.in/eEhCqiem, with a 50% weight on images.
A visitor will immediately notice the coherence of images with the query: they are all yellow.
This is very important, as the first impression is visual.
Only during a second phase the visitor will check the result titles and description.

— Text search https://lnkd.in/eHjBEJy6 —
Text search is powered by Weaviate‘s OpenAI embeddings module https://lnkd.in/erxxhdqS.
A visitor will immediately notice the incoherence of images with the query: they are not all yellow.
This is very important, as the first impression is visual.
There is a good chance that the visitor leaves without getting a second chance to evaluate titles and descriptions.
