Similar text search

(Grigory Ptashko) #1


I have a database of text objects where some of them are a variant of some others in a certain level of similarity. Specifically, these are news posts where some pieces of news are just slightly modified clones of others. Simply put reposts with some words modified.

I’m looking for a way to search for these similar text objects given one original text. It is not just full text search by a search query. It must be more intelligent to detect clones.

Does elastic search have this kind of functionality?

Hello Grigory,

Would Elasticsearch's More Like This query suit your needs?

Yes, it looks like what I need. Thank you!
