QNAP Officially Releases Qsirch 5.4.1: Enhanced AI-powered Semantic Search and Precise Image Search on NAS

Users can use natural language as prompts to quickly find images
Taipei, Taiwan, June 27, 2024 –QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading innovator in computing, networking, and storage solutions, today officially launched Qsirch 5.4.1. With new features such as AI-driven semantic search for images, similar image search, and quick document content preview, NAS users can now enjoy a more precise and user-friendly file search experience, significantly enhancing their productivity.

Qsirch is a search engine for QNAP NAS, allowing users to quickly find desired files from vast amounts of files and data. In addition to using “keyword search” for files, images, videos, PDF documents, and emails, users can benefit from Qsirch 5.4.1’s “AI-powered semantic search”, that leverages an AI model capable of analyzing intent and context of user queries. Semantic search allows users to quickly find precise results from using plain-language prompts and phrases.

To raise the bar with Qsirch, we have integrated AI-powered semantic search which has the potential to greatly enhance user productivity. We greatly appreciate the valuable feedback we received from our Qsirch 5.4.0 semantic search beta testers, which has enabled the QNAP development team to continually optimize the official release of Qsirch 5.4.1." said Amol Narkhede, Senior Product Manager of QNAP, adding “In the AI era, AI-driven semantic search breaks through the limitation of traditional keyword search, allowing users to use their everyday search habits to find desired content with higher accuracy.
