Abstract

Building a New AI-Powered Information Platform: Introduction of Toutiao and Its Newly Established AI Lab

I will talk about several new trends happening in the industry and academia today that give everyone of us opportunities to rethink information platform and develop new ways to connect people and information using AI technologies. I will introduce Toutiao which is a fast growing startup in China and its newly established AI Lab. I will talk about the company's mission and the recommendation engine and large-scale machine learning technologies that it has developed to provide personalized information feeds to 600M users worldwide. As of June 2017, its daily active users (DAU) has reached to 100M and average time use is 76 minutes. We hope to recruit talented people to join us to advance the state of the art in AI and pursue next big opportunities in building a new AI-powered information/content platform for everyone.
