We are a development team for search services for the product "IBM Watson Content Hub". "Search" is a core service with many facets to it.

The ranking strategy must improve the search results for a user and should at least contain 2 steps:
1. Classifying a user search request
2. and assign this to the most appropriate ranking strategy
