Shopping Muse Elevates the Experience for Consumers Browsing Digital Catalogs 

An advanced generative AI tool, Shopping Muse, was recently released by Dynamic Yield by Mastercard. The technology will provide a more personalized shopping experience for consumers searching for products in a retailer’s digital catalog. Whether a consumer uses unconventional search words or phrases — like “cottagecore” — Shopping Muse can offer suggestions that match the searcher’s unique consumer profile, browsing intent, and even affinity. Over time, results that match the shopper’s query are returned.   

Creating an authentic, personalized experience for the consumer reduces frustration as consumers are presented with items they might not have properly described. Browsing history and past purchases also inform the tool, and this allows the retailer to avoid offering an item not previously shown to the consumer.  

“Personalization gives people the shopping experiences they want, and AI-driven innovation is the key to unlocking immersive and tailored online shopping,” says Ori Bauer, CEO of Dynamic Yield by Mastercard. “By harnessing the power of generative AI in Shopping Muse, we’re meeting the consumer’s standards and making shopping smarter and more seamless than ever.”

Nextdoor Releases a Self-service Portal Allowing Businesses and Developers To Explore the Company’s API Offerings 

The Nextdoor Developer Site allows enterprises, small businesses, and developers to learn more about the company’s Application Programming Interface (API) offerings through its new self-service portal. Organizations can browse API capabilities and integrations that could be the right fit to help them improve advertising efforts and reach.  

With a focus on local information, goods and services, and community, Nextdoor has created a “neighborhood network” with millions of “neighbors,” businesses, and public agencies. Advertising and Content APIs allow partners to leverage a local network and engage neighbors across three pillars:  

  • Advertising: Campaign Management and Conversion API (CAPI)  

  • Sharing on Nextdoor: Share Plugin and Publish API  

  • Display Content from Nextdoor: Search, Trending Posts, and Public Agency Feed APIs   

“Nextdoor has delivered real value to partners through our content and advertising APIs,” says Heidi Andersen, Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer at Nextdoor. “With our APIs, partners have the opportunity to serve locally relevant content to a highly engaged audience, as well as measure the results of their efforts. We’re excited to continue to expand our API solutions and connect partners with the people, communities, and customers that matter to them.”
