◭ Machine learning has become an omnipresent tool that powers many applications, so when Weaviate started out building a database that has a specific focus on searching through machine learning vectors, they needed an interface that has a great UX, is simple to use, and could represent the data in a way they needed. During this talk, Bob will present a case study of the GraphQL interface in the Weaviate vector searching engine. What problem did they aim to solve, Why did they pick GraphQL and how is it implemented?
