About this Episode

Today we're joined by Tim Jurka, Head of Feed AI at LinkedIn. As you can imagine Feed AI is responsible for curating all the content you see daily on the LinkedIn site. What's less apparent to those that don't work on this type of product is the wide variety of opposing factors that need to be considered in organizing the feed. As you'll learn in our conversation, Tim calls this the holistic optimization of the feed and we discuss some of the interesting technical and business challenges associated with trying to do this. We talk through some of the specific techniques used at LinkedIn like Multi-arm Bandits and Content Embeddings, and also jump into a really interesting discussion about organizing for machine learning at scale.
