2023 SPEAKERS INCLUDED
Traditional search engines were conceived and designed when the internet and AI were in a different era.
Instead, you.com incorporates recent AI breakthroughs in generating text, images, and code in a conversational way directly into search.
In this keynote, we will explore the recent advancement in generative AI and its potential to transform the search engine space. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities this technology presents and its potential impact on how we access and consume information online.

Applied Scientist II
Graph based neural networks have garnered a lot of attention over the past few years especially in Search and Recommendation technology. Large global web companies like Amazon, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google use graph based models both in production and offline to develop robust representations of their existing knowledge graph systems . However, large scale graph modeling brings in a host of new challenges both on the machine learning architecture front and the distributed computing front. Large real world graphs are noisy, have a power-law distribution, contain high-behavior hub nodes which cause load imbalance during training/inference on the one hand and non-behavioral nodes with cold-start issues on the other. In this talk, I’ll be going over the implementation of graphML models for industry scale data.
