It has always been a concern of whether a search engine can help you in shopping. Yahoo has come up with a recent patent which describes customer’s questions regarding this. This uses a 3-dimensional model for presenting clothing to users. With this, users will be able to offer clothing recommendations. The matching algorithm used will help users to find out clothes that will match.
You can enter and maintain a user profile detail which could be used by the search engine for bringing you the required information. You can change these details as and when required by updating the information you are looking for. A 3 dimensional model could be provided along with other details so that, users will find more relevant information in the search results.
The results provided to the user will be based on a mixing of factors. This includes expert recommendations, friend recommendations etc. the friends can be entered into the user profile for a future reference.
The search works by collecting details including the searching habits of the user. These purchasing habits are used to help in finding out the relevant clothes for that particular user. This is yet another experiment from Yahoo which will help users to focus the search so as to provide the required information for the user.
