Infinity, the AI-native database, was made open-source prior to the winter solstice of 2023. Within just over three weeks, it has received positive feedback and accumulated 800+ stars from the open-source community. The majority of the feedback focuses on the following inquiries:
“Is Infinity just another vector database? Since there are already many vector databases available, why bother creating another one from scratch?”
“Traditional databases can easily incorporate vector search capabilities, so why reinvent the wheel?”
“Elasticsearch already has decent support for what you refer to as multiple recall. Then, what sets Infinity apart?”
Today, we will try to address these queries and delve into why the era of large models requires a fresh AI-native database.
