One of the top universities in the US wanted to have a solution for finding the documents which are contextually similar. It can be a useful technique to identify potentially relevant documents based on contextual similarity. The goal of the system is to find related documents which represents similar questions/answers with different content representation.

Business Goal

Extract text segments from text file.

Build semantic search models.

Deploy models to serve users ad hoc queries.

Document Viewer.

Highlight matched text segments.

Reporting on results and export/save documents.


There were multiple challenges while developing the solution like,

Handling large amount of documents,

Providing distributed search with second level latency.

Developing custom document viewer for displaying quick result of contextual similar paragraphs.


System architecture

  • Our engineers have divided this complex problem into sub modules. Major modules include extract text segments from text documents, build and tune semantic search models, searching facility on deployed model and semantic concept highlighting.
  • Distributed processing framework is used to extract paragraph from text documents and output is stored on central storage servers.
  • Semantic search models built from the extracted text segments, tune models, deploy on web server.
  • User select any text segments from web application built in text viewer and search for conceptually similar documents. System has also functionality to highlight resulted text segments, filter criteria, save and export results for further analytics.



We followed an iterative model approach to implement the solution that included the following phases:

Business requirements analysis.

Architecture design.

Application development.

Setup environment and application deployment.
