The LinkedIn AI org is responsible for developing machine learning algorithms, engineering data pipelines and scalable software platforms that fuel all LinkedIn applications. We use state-of-the-art big data and AI technologies to solve problems. To name a few examples:

1) We developed new classes of machine learning models based on generalized mixed effects models to combine disparate sources of data for personalization at the member level.

2) We heavily employed LSTM, CNNs, and sequence-to-sequence models for most of our natural language processing and computer vision tasks.

3) We built an “AI automation” platform called Pro-ML that allows us to manage the features and machine learning models for every engineering team at the company from one system. This system provides a single platform for the entire lifecycle of developing, training, deploying, and testing machine learning models. Our data infrastructure team innovated Kafka and Samza.
