Who we are
Qdrant is an Open-Source Neural Search Project.
We help businesses take advantage of AI with technologies like semantic search, matching, and recommendations.
We are developing similarity learning solutions that will allow everyone to use the state-of-the-art neural network encoders at the production scale.
At the same time, we help companies to integrate the technology into their infrastructure.
Our flagship technology is the open-source Vector Similarity Search Engine: qdrant.tech github.com/qdrant/qdrant
Our main project is the Vector Search Engine Qdrant. It is open-source and written in Rust 🦀. Check it out on GitHub. We develop both the project itself as well as the AI solutions built on its basis.
In addition to open-source development, we are also involved in implementing completes a cycle of AI solution development.
We plan to evolve towards SaaS solutions to make vector search technology available to companies of all sizes.
