Price Comparison

Services: Machine Learning

CHALLENGE

WikiBuy is an online shop assistant that integrates as a browser add-on. They automatically make an online search for any product you are currently viewing and looks for a better price. The challenge asks how might we create a superior product matching system that includes large quantities of products but also product attributes and value.

SOLUTION

Developed a chrome extension for mobile web browsers that extract on-site data, mapping to product information from third-party sites. That data was processed using Random Forrest and NLP classification models to output lower price product comparisons. This new approach leverages a real-time human-in-the-loop system to maximize accuracy.

OUTCOME

Created a system that achieves 90-95% accuracy, 450% better than previous techniques.
