6:55pm - 7:00pm: Enter the online room

7:00pm - 7:05pm: Announcements

7:05pm - 8:30pm: Talk followed by Q&A


In the past 15 years, we have seen exponential growth in online video platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, Netflix, TikTok, amongst others. In this walk, we will take a look at some of the challenges these platforms have been facing and how machine learning is playing an important role in addressing these challenges. In particular, we will focus on discussing 3 areas:

  1. Content discovery and SEO optimization
  2. Establishing trust and safety
  3. Protecting the rights of the content owners

We will also discuss some of the areas that are currently open for future research.
