Building AI-Powered Social Infrastructure at Facebook Scale
At Facebook, we are building AI that helps bring the world closer together. Our work in areas like computer vision, natural language understanding, speech and core machine learning will help people better understand each other and the world. However, how does one enable a very large number of engineers with varying levels of AI expertise to explore as fast as possible the entire funnel, from devising new modeling paradigms all the way to rapid live experimentation, and ultimately to product deployment at Facebook scale? In this talk I will give an overview of the different applications of AI across the entire family of Facebook experiences, and share some of the lessons we have learnt, both from the perspective of tools and infrastructure, as well as from the lens of culture and organizational principles.
