Welcome to Mercari's Global Engineer's Meetup! This is an event to gather global engineers in the Tokyo area to share technical knowledge and network over drinks & food. This is not a study session, no need to bring your laptop (unless you really want to). Each session we'll have a different theme.
📌 Theme: Improving Products with Machine Learning
Machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience (data) without being explicitly programmed. The Mercari system has a dataset of more than 30 million users only in Japan, so we are exploring some of the applications of Machine Learning to improve our products.
For this meetup we brought together some of our AI engineers to talk about the challenges and approaches when using Machine Learning in these circumstances, and we invite everyone to join this discussion with us.
