Applied Math Seminar

Alpan Raval (CGU, Keck Graduate Institute)


In this talk I will present a very high-level (equation-free) overview of some Machine Learning (ML) projects at LinkedIn and the data used to drive them. I will describe the problems and discuss the challenges in implementing ML solutions to these problems. Many of these challenges are common to large internet companies — examples include: high volumes of dynamic data, noisy ground truth, and time-to-inference requirements — while a few are specific to the LinkedIn platform.
