Pinterest Information Session

Thursday, September 18, 2014 4:00pm - 5:30pm

We’re building a powerful discovery tool. Our platform connects millions of people to billions of objects. Indexing user-driven data at the object-level creates immense engineering challenges. Plus, the ambiguity and granularity of image-based data complicates things even further. The complexity of our systems is unparalleled. We've built some awesome technologies to-date, like computer vision aesthetic analysis tools that touch all images and systems that allow over 30 billion pins to be instantaneously recalled at any time by individual users.
