KDD 2018

Aug 23, 2018

Netflix was thrilled to join the 2018 KDD conference. Our team members at KDD had great conversations about interesting problems we’re tackling in content discovery, production, recommendation & search, ML infrastructure, and more.

Invited Talk
Jen Walraven gave a talk on Data Science and Content Production as part of the Novel Applications sessions. As Netflix continues to produce Original content that spans geographic boundaries, we look to data science to empower our creative production teams. By applying machine learning and analytics to the production process, we can unlock deeper insight on scalability and efficiency -- and enable content creators to tell their best stories. In this talk, we shared our approach for opportunities and challenges ahead in an evolving entertainment industry.

Netflix KDD Mixer
We hosted a mixer at the Good Hotel London to network with other conference attendees. It was great to meet and chat with everyone about the interesting work they’re doing around the world.
