Voyage

Milvus supports Voyage reranker model through the VoyageRerankFunction class. This functionality allows you to score the relevance of query-document pairs effectively.

To use this feature, install the necessary dependencies:

pip install --upgrade pymilvus
pip install "pymilvus[model]"

Then, instantiate the VoyageRerankFunction:

from pymilvus.model.reranker import VoyageRerankFunction

# Define the rerank function
voyage_rf = VoyageRerankFunction(
    model_name="rerank-lite-1",  # Specify the model name. Defaults to `rerank-lite-1`.
    api_key=VOYAGE_API_KEY # Replace with your Voyage API key
)

Parameters:

  • model_name (string)

    The name of the Voyage model to use for encoding. If you leave this parameter unspecified, rerank-lite-1 will be used. For a list of available models, refer to Rerankers.

  • api_key (string)

    The API key for accessing the Voyage API. For information on how to create an API key, refer to API Key and Python Client.

Then, use the following code to rerank documents based on the query:

query = "What event in 1956 marked the official birth of artificial intelligence as a discipline?"

documents = [
    "In 1950, Alan Turing published his seminal paper, 'Computing Machinery and Intelligence,' proposing the Turing Test as a criterion of intelligence, a foundational concept in the philosophy and development of artificial intelligence.",
    "The Dartmouth Conference in 1956 is considered the birthplace of artificial intelligence as a field; here, John McCarthy and others coined the term 'artificial intelligence' and laid out its basic goals.",
    "In 1951, British mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing also developed the first program designed to play chess, demonstrating an early example of AI in game strategy.",
    "The invention of the Logic Theorist by Allen Newell, Herbert A. Simon, and Cliff Shaw in 1955 marked the creation of the first true AI program, which was capable of solving logic problems, akin to proving mathematical theorems."
]

results = voyage_rf(
    query=query,
    documents=documents,
    top_k=3,
)

for result in results:
    print(f"Index: {result.index}")
    print(f"Score: {result.score:.6f}")
    print(f"Text: {result.text}\n")

The expected output is similar to the following:

Index: 1
Score: 0.898438
Text: The Dartmouth Conference in 1956 is considered the birthplace of artificial intelligence as a field; here, John McCarthy and others coined the term 'artificial intelligence' and laid out its basic goals.
