1. A computer-implemented method, comprising:
updating, based at least in part on a first user input that comprises a search query, a search interface view of a graphical user interface presented at a user device to include a set of search results corresponding to a set of items associated with the search query;
providing, based at least in part on triggering information, an enhancement tool selector for presentation within the search interface view at the user device, wherein the triggering information represents user interactions with the set of search results, the user interactions are indicative of continued user searching within the set of search results, and the triggering information is useable to detect an enhancement trigger;
providing, based at least in part on a second user input that selects the enhancement tool selector, a refinement interface view of the graphical user interface for presentation at the user device;
updating, based at least in part on a third user input that corresponds to at least one search filter, the refinement interface view to include a subset of search results of the set of search results;
providing, based at least in part on a fourth user input that selects a search result of the subset of search results, a question interface view of the graphical user interface for presentation at the user device, the search result corresponding to an item from the set of items;
receiving, via the question interface view, information associated with a question presented at the question interface view, the information being received (i) as a user text input at the question interface view or (ii) as a user selection from a set of suggested questions presented at the question interface view, the question corresponding to the item; and
generating a response to the question for presentation via the question interface view, the response corresponding to the item.
