At the Danish E-Commerce Conference this year, our partner Algolia introduced Neural Search, their cutting edge AI powered search tool. This blog is based on their presentation and we'll go over how AI is revolutionizing search and how it works in practice.

In the fast-paced world of e-commerce, search and discovery are paramount, driving revenue and customer satisfaction. In fact, nearly 50% of website visitors head straight to the search bar, and these search-savvy users are three times more likely to convert. So, what if you could supercharge your search capabilities with cutting-edge technology that not only automates the process but also understands user intent better than ever before?

Enter AI neural search, the game-changer that transforms the way organizations approach search. In a recent conference hosted by Dansk Erhverv, speakers Alfie and Jeremy from Algolia shed light on the incredible potential of AI neural search and how it can benefit commerce. Let's dive into the exciting world of AI and its impact on search on commerce sites.

The Evolution of Search

Search engines have come a long way since their inception, evolving from basic keyword matching to a more intelligent and nuanced approach. It's no longer just about finding exact matches to search terms; it's about understanding the user's intent and delivering results that align with their needs. This evolution in search technology is driven by AI, and it's transforming the way businesses operate.

One significant challenge with traditional search solutions is the need for extensive manual optimization. This labor-intensive process often leaves many search terms unoptimized, resulting in missed opportunities for businesses. To solve this problem, a fully automated solution is needed, and this is where AI neural search comes into play.

The AI neural search solution offered by our Algolia, is nothing short of revolutionary. This technology leverages vectors, which are multi-dimensional maps of ideas derived from vast datasets. Unlike traditional keyword matching, which focuses on exact word matches, AI neural search interprets and understands user intent. For instance, it can decipher that when a user searches for "dress shirt for office job," they're looking for a professional shirt for a new job, even if the exact keyword match doesn't exist.

Understanding Intent: A Live Demo

Jeremy's live demonstration at the conference vividly illustrates the power of AI neural search. He provides several examples that showcase how AI neural search significantly enhances search results:

  1. "Dress Shirt for Office Job": In traditional keyword search, this query might not yield relevant results due to the mismatch between keywords. However, AI neural search understands the user's intent and returns results that align with their needs.
  2. "Small USB": When searching for a "small USB," traditional keyword matching may limit results because it focuses on the word "USB" in the title. AI neural search, on the other hand, comprehends the user's intention and offers various small USB options, providing a much better search experience.
  3. "TV Gift Cards" and "Telly": In the world of synonyms and slang, AI neural search excels. For example, if you search for "TV gift cards" and then replace "TV" with "telly," AI neural search still provides relevant results, such as Netflix and Fandango gift cards, understanding the user's intent rather than relying solely on exact keywords.

The Benefits of AI Neural Search

So, what benefits can your organization gain from embracing AI neural search?

  1. Enhanced User Experience: AI neural search understands user intent, delivering more accurate and relevant results. Users can find what they're looking for even when using different terms or phrases.
  2. Increased Revenue: By optimizing the long tail of search—those less common and complex queries—AI neural search can boost your revenue potential by up to 30%. Don't miss out on potential sales due to unoptimized search results.
  3. Automated Efficiency: Say goodbye to extensive manual efforts like defining synonyms and creating complex rules. AI neural search takes care of these tasks automatically, saving you time and resources.
  4. Future-Proofing Your Business: AI neural search is at the forefront of AI adoption, making it an ideal starting point for companies looking to harness the power of AI.

Discover the Magic of AI Neural Search

AI NeuralSearch is more than a buzzword; it's a game-changing technology that can transform how your organization approaches search. With a deep understanding of user intent and the capability to automate and optimize search, you can unlock the true potential of your e-commerce platform.

In B2B, it’s particularly important to maximize customer lifetimes so you can grow and maintain competitiveness. E-commerce provides many ways to acquire, maintain and retain customers and to create opportunities for long-term relationships.

Modern consumers have changed their behavior over years and are most often doing extensive research before they approach a supplier. When they change their habits, you have to change. The key is to offer the same customer experience in all channels – so called unified commerce. Because modern consumers collect information, compare and weigh up the advantages and disadvantages by themselves before making a buying decision, they have often come a long way in the purchase process before approaching a supplier. To create business opportunities and gain repeat custom, you need to achieve an experience that extends across and is the same in all channels. This is particularly clear in the B2B sector. To succeed here, it's best to start at the other end and collect information about your customers to achieve a 360-degree view.
