Title (EN) PRICE DETERMINATION FOR ITEMS OF LOW DEMAND
(FR) DETERMINATION DE PRIX POUR DES ARTICLES A FAIBLE DEMANDE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A computer-implemented system that facilitates establishing price(s) associated with items comprises a clustering component that clusters a collection of non-identical items into one or more sets of non-identical items. A pricing component receives one or more of active bids and stored bids and simulates an auction of at least one non-identical item within one of the one or more sets of non-identical items as if the non-identical items within the set were identical to determine price(s) associated with the at least one non-identical item. For example, the items can be at least portions of search terms received by a search engine.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système informatisé qui facilite l'établissement de prix associés à des articles. Ce système comprend un composant de regroupement qui regroupe une collection d'articles non identiques en un ou plusieurs ensembles d'articles non identiques. Un composant de détermination de prix reçoit une ou plusieurs offres parmi des offres actives et des offres stockées et il simule une vente aux enchères d'au moins un article non identique à l'intérieur d'un des ensembles d'articles non identiques comme si les articles non identiques à l'intérieur de l'ensemble étaient identiques pour déterminer un ou plusieurs prix associés à ce ou ces articles non identiques. Par exemple, les articles peuvent être au moins des parties de termes de recherche reçus par un moteur de recherche.
