Speaker: Lotem Peled
Title: Tackling Complex Marketplace Issues With RNN Sentence Encoding and Feature Engineering.
Abstract: Fiverr is the world’s largest online marketplace for freelance services (aka, gigs). Connecting between millions of buyers and sellers from over 200 countries worldwide, Fiverr deals with huge amounts of data, and some pretty big data science challenges. In this talk, Lotem Peled, A Data Scientist and NLP researcher at Fiverr, will present some of these issues- How do you identify the highest quality gigs on the marketplace? How do you promote the right service for the right customer? What really happens behind the intuitive 5-star rating system? Can ML algorithms solve qualitative problems like poor grammar for freelancers? Lotem will discuss two interesting problems that are solved using sentence encoding with an LSTM RNN. She will also show how feature engineering with XGBoost is used to tackle tasks, and finally will discuss interesting challenges the are yet to be solved.

See you!!
