Data Science Invited Talk Series

Speaker: Jean-David (JD) Ruvini, Research & Development Director, eBay

Where: Lindley Hall, Room 102

When:  Friday -  March 24, 2017 1:30 PM

Topic:  Data Science in e-Commerce Domain

Abstract:  Trade is believed to have taken place throughout much of recorded human history and had a fundamental impact on the evolution of all societies. With hundreds of millions of buyers and sellers, and hundreds of millions of live listings at any point in time, online marketplaces like eBay provides an amazing playground for data scientists to work with data and conduct experiments at massive scale. However, while we are in the midst of an extraordinary period of computing platform revolution and a renaissance in artificial intelligence, the specific challenges that e-commerce raises in term of data science are not widely understood. In this talk, we will give an overview of research carried out at eBay to leverage Machine Learning in the e-commerce domain. We will focus in particular on two areas, Machine Translation and Named Entity Recognition, and will show what makes these tasks particularly challenging.
