Machine Learning at Pinterest

Friday, September 22, 2017 — 1:30PM - 3:00PM

Pinterest aims to be the world’s catalog of ideas. Our mission is to provide users with carefully personalized content that accurately targets their interests while providing new ideas from which to draw inspiration. In this sense, we work towards solving the unique problem of emulating human taste and preference in recommendations that simultaneously maximize relevance and accuracy. To this end, we use cutting-edge machine learning techniques on our vast dataset of over 300 million users and 50 billion pins. This talk will give a general overview of such techniques and how they are used by different teams across the company. In addition, there will be a discussion on the different challenges posed by using machine learning to solve large-scale problems in the technology industry.
