Qsirch 5.4.0 Beta

Taipei, Taiwan, April 18, 2024 – QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, today introduced the Qsirch 5.4.0 Beta. Featuring the cutting-edge AI-driven Semantic Search for image search and previewing document content, NAS users can now enjoy a more easy-to-use file search experience with higher levels of precision.

Qsirch is a powerful search engine designed for QNAP NAS, assisting users in quickly finding the files they need from a vast amount of storage data. Besides using “keyword search” to full-text search for files, images, videos, PDF documents and emails, users can enable “semantic search” to precisely find images using natural and intuitive language prompts as search queries.

“Semantic search utilizes natural language processing techniques to determine the semantics of sentences, breaking through the limitation of traditional keyword search and significantly improving search accuracy,” said Amol Narkhede, Senior Product Manager of QNAP, adding “QNAP is pioneering the integration of AI into NAS file search, providing users with greater efficiency in their daily file search process. We encourage all QNAP users to join the Qsirch 5.4.0 semantic search beta test and provide feedback to help us continually improve QNAP solutions for better user experiences.”
