Neo4j adds Vector Search within its Native Graph Database

Neo4j, a graph database and analytics company, announced that it has integrated native vector search as part of its core database capabilities. The result enables customers to achieve richer insights from semantic search and generative AI applications, and serve as long-term memory for LLMs, while reducing hallucinations.

Neo4j’s graph database can be used to create knowledge graphs, which capture and connect explicit relationships between entities, enabling AI systems to reason, infer, and retrieve relevant information effectively. The result ensures more accurate, explainable, and transparent outcomes for LLMs and other generative AI applications. By contrast, vector searches capture implicit patterns and relationships based on items with similar data characteristics, rather than exact matches, which are useful when searching for similar text or documents, making recommendations, and identifying other patterns.

This latest advancement follows from Neo4j’s recent product integration with Google Cloud’s generative AI features in Vertex AI in June, enabling users to transform unstructured data into knowledge graphs, which users can then query using natural language and ground their LLMs against factual set of patterns and criteria to prevent hallucinations.

ElevenLabs releases Eleven Multilingual v2

ElevenLabs, a provider of voice AI software, launched a new multilingual voice generation model capable of accurately producing “emotionally rich” AI audio in nearly 30 languages. ElevenLabs also confirmed today that the platform is officially coming out of Beta.

The advancement, based on in-house research, will allow creators to produce localized audio content for international markets across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. ElevenLabs has spent the last 18 months analyzing the markers of human speech, building new mechanisms for understanding context and conveying emotions in speech generation, as well as synthesizing new, unique voices.

Regardless of whether a synthetic voice or cloned voice is being used, the speaker’s unique voice characteristics are maintained across all languages, including their original accent. This means the same voice can be used to bring content to life across 28 separate languages. Creators can use ElevenLabs’ tool to improve content accessibility for people with visual impairments or additional learning needs by supplementing visual content with speech available in multiple languages.

Supported languages include: English, Polish, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Hindi, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, Dutch, Turkish, Swedish, Indonesian, Filipino, Japanese, Ukrainian, Greek, Czech, Finnish, Romanian, Danish, Bulgarian, Malay, Slovak, Croatian, Classic Arabic and Tamil.
