Nordstrom is an American department store chain whose search engine is a key venue for product discovery. Nordstrom seeks to move beyond user clicks to evaluate the relevance of its search results compared to those of its competitors. This year, the team has developed an automated end-to-end system to pull search queries from an AWS database, execute them on retailers’ websites and generate relevance scores with respect to color and aesthetics.
