Partial Match and Auto Complete

How can I mimic the functionality that answers.coveo.com search box has.

Specifically the partial keyword match with one character and the query suggestions.

I have seen threads on how to implement wildcard match and Coveo suggest not allowing it to work with one character because of performance.

Is answers.coveo.com using a one character to enable wildcard search, or are they doing something different?

Answers.coveo.com uses field suggestions on the @systitle field which is configured as a facet field, enabling the wildcard anywhere in the term like `*query*`.

Search.coveo.com uses Machine Learning-based query suggestions.

You can find documentation on all of them for Coveo for Sitecore V4 here: https://developers.coveo.com/display/public/SitecoreV4/Providing+Suggestions+using+the+Coveo+Omnibox
