Destination BC’s consumer website, HelloBC.com, is testing website personalization to serve up dynamically optimized content, based on an individual’s interests and context. How does it work? As you explore HelloBC.com, the  engine uses a cookie to observe the content that you interact with and applies an algorithm to build a unique customer profile of your inferred affinities. With this information, as well as the behaviour of others who have looked at similar content, the engine is able to select and recommend the next best piece of content for you in real time. The website will showcase featured stories in dropdown meus and carousels.  This initial project will be expanded with time with additional features and personalized content, so watch the website for more customized stories.
