Oct 2022: Shift in People's Search Behavior 📈

Selected period: September 2022. LY = last year.

We see a big shift in people's search behavior due to inflation. People search more for deals on products and fewer search for chains. Therefore, it seems like people prioritizes the deal itself higher than the actual brand.

Overall, searches have increased by more than 89 %, however the share of product searches has increased by 20 % while the share of searches on brands has declined by 23 %.

Tjek is Doing Science!

Our efforts in Deep Learning research have recently bore fruit in the form of an accepted scientific article published in the proceedings of the 31st International Joint Artificial Intelligence Conference (IJCAI), which took place in Vienna in summer 2022. We got to fly the Tjek flag at the event during an open panel presentation and poster sessions. IJCAI is one of the top 10 scientific venues in Artificial Intelligence in the world.

At Tjek, we're investing in creating beautiful and structured catalogs automatically using machine learning. This is especially handy if you have a list of products without categories and/or priority. Then we can auto-create the catalog for you using tons of historic data.

Our article, entitled Set Interdependence Transformer: Set-to-Sequence Neural Networks for Permutation Learning and Structure Prediction introduces a new, more efficient method for learning representations of sets and combines it with attention transformations into a larger, attention-based model architecture. This model then learns how to take sets of elements and order them into a structure. In our context, this reflects taking a set of offers (of any size) and predicting which of them form complementary sections and how to order these sections into a full catalog, in a supervised fashion.

Insights

Soon, we're launching a new module in Publication Performance for Insights by Tjek where you can see when people generally read publications:

This will be an extremely helpful tool to plan when you publish publications.
