Data structures for fast autocomplete

Autocomplete is a feature that suggests a complete word or phrase after a user has typed just a few letters. The feature increases text input speed especially on mobile devices because one doesn't have to type every letter in a word. Autocomplete functionality is commonly found on search engines and messaging apps.
