Title: TOPIC-BASED PLACE OF INTEREST DISCOVERY FEED
Abstract:
Generating an interactive discovery feed of place of interest items (POIs) relevant to a user is provided. A relevant POI discovery feed system curates a collection of narratives about various POIs from multiple sources and generates a plurality of POI content feed items including content items (e.g., photos, maps, links to additional information or related POIs) extracted from the collection of narratives. The system determines a set of POIs relevant to a user based on user-selected topics of interest and user preferences inferred from signals generated from user interactions with the system, and generates a discovery feed of POI content feed items associated with the set of relevant POIs for display to the user. In some examples, the items are presented in a card-based UI. Users are enabled to easily discover new places, view photos, and learn more about POIs in a consistent presentation of POI- related content feed items.
