Learning The Semantics of Millions of Entities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What do "Software Developer", "MTS", and "Code Monkey" have in common? No, it's not the start to a bad joke. It's actually a situation where many unique entities turn out to have a small number of distinct semantics. This talk will present new techniques for mapping millions of such entities into a common semantic space with just a few thousand labels. We'll discuss how these techniques have been applied to job titles, skills, majors, and degrees to build candidate recommendation systems.
