Weaviate & ColBERTv2?


What is Weaviate’s current & planned support for ColBERTv2? Similarly what is your support for Colbert based embedding models eg [


](jinaai/jina-colbert-v1-en · Hugging Face)




Server Setup Information

  • Weaviate Server Version:
  • Deployment Method:
  • Multi Node? Number of Running Nodes:
  • Client Language and Version:

Any additional Information

Hi Draco!

AFAIK, with the text2vec-hugging integration:

allows you to use any hugging face model :thinking:

So as far it is available, it will be supported.

Let me know if this helps!

We could try to load such vector embeddings using the HuggingFace so at least there is a good interface for it which is good. I would like to know tho what the planned support is for multi-vector embeddings on Weaviate as I think this is required to fully support ColVERTv2 in the longer term. Also do you know if anyone has succesffuly used BGE-M3 for dense, and sparse representations on Weaviate. Thanks


If by multivector you mean having more than 1 vector per object, we already support that with named vectors:

I can’t help with that other BGE-M3 question :frowning:
