Smart Autocompl...

Automatic suggestion functionality on most websites are simply standard Solr fuzzy wildcard queries on a concatenated index. For the Dutch public transportation website we created a more contextual autocompletion function, that uses the different address fields of the source database to its advantage, which allows it to better understand what address a user means in this highly ambiguous data environment. We will show the methods used and explain how this may help bring autocompletion functionality to the next level for faceted indexes.
