Description

Curious about what it takes to build machine learning, and deep learning search products that scale?

Join us for two exciting talks where we explore how YELP is using deep learning to identify the most beautiful and relevant photos and how LinkedIn is using machine learning to model user intent, understand user query, and rank search results to deliver personalized experiences.


Using Deep Learning to Find Beautiful and Relevant Photos

Yelp users have uploaded millions of photos, and the rate of photos being added is only increasing. In order to deliver the best experience for our users, the content understanding team is using deep learning to identify the most beautiful and relevant photos and display them throughout the site.

In this talk, Alex will discuss the motivation for using a deep learning approach, explain how it was implemented, and some illustrative results and leave you with insightful key takeaways.


Building Search Products With Machine Learning to Find Opportunities

In this talk, Shakhina will give an overview of the search and discovery problem, and present LinkedIn’s approach to navigating and exploring its economic graph using search technologies. Shakhina will highlight how they use machine learning to model user intent, understand user query, and rank search results to deliver personalized experiences.
