Women in Big Data and LinkedIn: Vision 2020

By Regina Karson, WiBD Board Member and Chapter Director.

On Jan 22nd, 2020, LinkedIn hosted an event in partnership with Women in Big Data. More than 200 professionals gathered to hear and share their vision for the brand-new decade. The event covered a number of talks around LinkedIn’s key recommendation feature: Jobs You May Be Interested In (or JYMBII for short). The talks ranged from challenges in search and recommendation AI systems, Data Science, and Trust and Fairness, as well as the infrastructure components required to scale to a global pool of more than half a billion members!
