Discovery in Commerce Search

Abstract :

Ranking in commerce search has several unique challenges. One of the specific challenges for a commerce search engine is maintaining a discovery mechanism that does not hurt its revenue, sales, or the customer experience significantly. In this talk, I will discuss a few practical and theoretically sound algorithms for discovery in a commerce search engine that can be nicely incorporated into an existing learning to rank (LTR) framework.
