Machine learning is essential to Facebook’s mission to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. ML helps billions of people discover new content and connect with the stories they care the most about. Our applied machine learning researchers and engineers develop algorithms that rank feeds, ads and search results, and create new text understanding algorithms that keep spam and misleading content at bay. New computer vision algorithms can “read” images and videos to the blind and create new magical visual experiences such as turning panorama photos into fully interactive 360 photos; speech recognition systems automatically caption the videos that play in your news feed and display over 2 billion translated stories every day. Our ML teams keep shipping disruptive new technology that’s helping to drive our mission and, even so, we are just 1% done.
