220 Named vectors

Course overview

Sometimes, you might wish to provide multiple ways to represent the same data. For example, you might want to represent an article using its body, its title, or both.

Named vectors enable this capability. With named vectors, you can store multiple vectors per one object, then search for the object using any of the vector spaces. This provides a great deal of flexibility in how you can represent and search for your data.

This course will teach you how to use named vectors through the lens of multimodality. It will show you how to use named vectors to represent and search for movies, using their text properties such as the title or the summary, or their visual properties such as the poster.

If you do not wish to use multimodal data, that's okay! The concepts you learn in this course can be applied to any kind of data, or any kind of vectorizer.
