10:00 AM - 10:30 AM - Creating a Positive User Experience with GPT3
Maya Wilson

Maya Wilson

Director of Data Science at Intuit Mailchimp


AI-driven text generation is top of mind these days, and GPT3 has made content generation exponentially more accessible to everyone, from data scientists to designers. So… are we done? Not quite. Creating a positive user experience with zero-shot models should be top of mind for product teams producing human-like text.

In this talk, Maya Wilson will cover the following:

  • Thinking about “accuracy” in the context of AI-generated text
  • Building personalized experiences with privacy in mind
  • Creating internal visibility through monitoring to ensure the models are working as expected

Whether you are a data scientist, engineer, or product manager, this talk will provide valuable insights and practical strategies for your GPT-driven product development.

11:30 AM - 12:00 PM - Productionizing Large Language Models
Rolland He

Rolland He

Manager, Machine Learning Science, Glassdoor

Linge Lass

Linge Lass

Staff Machine Learning Scientist, Glassdoor


Building and maintaining models for production is hard! The advent of large language models (LLMs) has highlighted a number of challenges for how ML teams build out production-scale systems. The nature of these challenges also differ quite a bit based on the maturity of the ML team, which makes it impossible to provide a one-size-fits-all solution for ML teams.

In this talk, you'll learn about how Glassdoor shifted to using LLMs for NLP tasks, and some of the challenges we faced when productionizing and maintaining such models, both from a technical and an organizational standpoint. To do this, we'll be walking through a case study related to how we're able to leverage these LLMs to build out new features for Fishbowl, our social media platform for professionals.

Join this talk to learn about some of the hurdles the Glassdoor ML team overcame to successfully deploy a LLM for use in a production use case!
