Event Details

Join us at Facebook’s London office for a Tech Talk about our new product Graph Search on Tuesday, 12th of March from 6.30pm to 9.30pm. The talk will be co-presented by Mike Schroepfer, Engineering VP,  and Kari Lee, Engineering Manager for the Search Product team from Menlo Park, California.

More than 1 billion people actively use Facebook, so far sharing more then 240 billion photos and 1 trillion connections. Graph Search offers a new way to traverse those connections, providing a new type of search for people, photos, places, and interests.  Everyone's search results are personalized and privacy-aware, which entails real-time fetching, filtering, ranking and diversification of the results. Any piece of data is subject to changes in privacy settings, which need to be reflected on the results instantly. On top of that, Graph Search has a unique user interface that uses natural language processing to parse the user input and to render page titles. This talk will give an overview of the system architecture and present the past and present engineering challenges.

Food and drinks will be provided.  Bring your questions, and bring a friend!

We hope to see you there!

Cheers,
Facebook Engineering
