Join Airbnb Engineering for a Tech Talk focusing on Machine Learning. Speakers from Airbnb, Facebook and Lyft will talk about how machine learning is applied to two core components of online platforms - matching and pricing.
Whether matching Airbnb guests to the most appealing listings or delivering Facebook users the most relevant stories, an effective matching algorithm needs to learn the unique characteristics of both users and content. Similarly finding the ideal price to balance supply and demand in a two sided marketplace like Airbnb or Lyft requires responsive algorithms capable of understanding the marketplace’s particular drivers of demand. All four talks will highlight practical and innovative machine learning techniques developed to tackle these platform modeling challenges.
