The companies will evaluate search relevance algorithms on Carousell for its machine learning models. That should improve the classifieds firm’s search and recommendation functions on its platform, the company said in a statement.
“In eCommerce, search is everything – if you can’t find it, you can’t buy it. Supahands’ evaluations of our search results have added significant clarity and value to our search and recommendation models,” said Puneet Garg, head of data science and data engineering at Carousell.
In September 2020, the company raised $80 million in a funding round led by Naver. That brought the company value to over $900 million.
The partnership will also leverage strong growth in the online classifieds market, which is expected to hit $463 billion by 2023.
