Hello Weaviate friends, 🤗

Welcome to the latest edition of the Weaviate Newsletter, with valuable updates, tutorials, demos, and noteworthy highlights.

One significant announcement we're excited to share is the integration of Weaviate with Confluent Cloud. This integration opens up new possibilities and opportunities for your business.

Let's dive right into the latest updates.

Weaviate + Confluent

Weaviate's integration with Confluent Cloud gives users simple access to data streams from across their entire business to build a real-time, contextual, and trustworthy knowledge base fueling their AI applications.

With easy access to data streams from across their entire business, Weaviate users can now:

  • Create a real-time knowledge base: Build a shared source of real-time truth for all your operational and analytical data, no matter where it lives for sophisticated model building and fine-tuning. Think business competitive analysis dashboards that are updated with latest market news updates.

  • Bring real-time context at query time: Convert raw data into meaningful chunks with real-time enrichment and continually update your embedding databases for your GenAI use cases. Think real-time filtering based on region, demographics, personas in online shopping, etc.

  • Build governed, secured, and trusted AI: Establish data lineage, quality and traceability, providing all your teams with a clear understanding of data origin, movement, transformations and usage.

  • Experiment, scale and innovate faster: Reduce innovation friction as new AI apps and models become available. Decouple data from your data science tools and production AI apps to test and build faster.
