Add new categories and merchant on-the-go

A living, breathing map of the world’s tastes

maya.ai acquires essential data on various lifestyle categories, to create a graph-based entity-affinity model.

This model is then mapped to customer behavior data, to reveal a universe of choices and recommendations.

 

The TasteGraph™ has over 6.5Mn merchants analyzed and mapped, including

2.4Mn+

hotels

650K+

attractions

4.4Mn+

other merchants

Entities

With over 6.5Mn merchants and counting, every digitally discoverable merchant is a target entity for the TasteGraph™. It identifies unique merchants globally and establishes relationships with other relevant merchants.

Taste Attributes

maya.ai understands how customers make decisions in each lifestyle category. It identifies the attributes that define tastes in these categories. For example, to understand the tastes of customers in dining, maya.ai factors restaurant attributes like quality of service, ambiance, food, cuisine and specials. With cutting-edge machine learning and natural language processing (NLP), maya.ai filters through a combination of structured metadata and unstructured data. It then tags

every merchant with hundreds of such taste attributes and assigns scores to each, to create a taste profile of the merchant.

Affinities

Based on a merchant’s profile, maya.ai provides an affinity score between any two merchants in each category. maya.ai uses anonymized customer preferences and a patented collaborative method to create a cross-category graph.
All in real-time.

Complement your customers’ tastes with the right merchants

The TasteMatch provides an affinity score between a customer’s taste profile and a given merchant.

The TasteMatch score is used to rank recommendations for customers. It considers context for specific use-cases.
