Hunch personalizes the internet by learning about your tastes. The Hunch API provides access to this personalization through result recommendations as well as predictions about users. Results and users come from the user-generated hunch.com website, web crawls, and partner applications. Every result and user has a unique id.
The Taste Graph
The Hunch Taste Graph maps people to what they like, connecting every person on the web with their affinity for every entity (camera, car, movie star, anything!). Using the Taste Graph, Hunch is able to make highly accurate predictions and recommendations for users.
