When the city of Las Vegas debuted its slogan “What happens here, stays here,” in 2003, the saying became an instant cultural phenomenon. A few years ago, they tweaked their official slogan ever so slightly, debuting the spinoff, “What happens here, only happens here,” meant to reflect the city’s growing reputation as a destination for unique sports and entertainment events. There are, of course, exceptions to that rule. But we’ll get to that in a second… 

Algolia x Shoptalk

Last week, Algolia exhibited at Shoptalk – one of the world’s largest gatherings of retail innovators – at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. In true Las Vegas style, we set out to make a splash. Between the towering wall banners guiding escalator users toward our booth, the in-booth magician weaving together mind-bending tricks with the concept of search and discovery, and our theater-style presentations on optimizing digital experiences for shoppers, make a splash we did. But perhaps the biggest splash came with the debut of Algolia’s two newest innovations – Algolia Merchandising Studio and Algolia NeuralSearch

The future of ecommerce digital experiences starts now

You’ve heard it before: artificial intelligence (AI) is the future. While that was true at one time, it’s perhaps more accurate to say that artificial intelligence is the present. Algolia has embraced this present state by building the world’s only end-to-end AI Search and Discovery platform, that will power our portfolio of products that enable users to create innovative and intuitive digital search experiences for their shoppers and customers. 

On the exhibit floor at Shoptalk, Ricky Wahba, senior solutions engineer at Algolia, showcased a few of the AI-powered capabilities of Algolia Merchandising Studio that give merchandisers the power to monetize their entire catalog and enhance their business outcomes in real-time. Without a single line of code, merchandisers have the ability to pin or hide items, boost or bury entire categories, filter results, and more with just a few clicks.

During the event, our search experts also shared more about Algolia NeuralSearch, the world’s most advanced search solution that combines keyword matching with vector-based natural language processing, enabling organizations to truly understand the intent behind a user’s search query. (Click here for a first look!)

Back to the city of Las Vegas slogan… In the case of Algolia’s debut of Algolia Merchandising Studio and Algolia NeuralSearch at Shoptalk, what happens in Vegas, certainly doesn’t only happen in Vegas, nor does it have to stay there! Learn more about Algolia Merchandising Studio, available now, and subscribe for updates on the launch of Algolia NeuralSearch.
