There is no 2:00pm Seminar this week, but the 3:00pm NLIP talk is a recommended alternative.

The development of the World Wide Web over the last 15 years has utterly transformed the publishing landscape. The shift towards digital media has compressed the timescales for journalists and allowed publishers to vastly increased distribution. The Guardian has successfully embraced the digital era, overtaking New York Times as the world’s second most popular English-language newspaper website. In a highly competitive landscape where publishers can obtain direct feedback from readers at scale, it has become clear that data literacy is key for success. To address this challenge Guardian began building the Data Science Group in 2015. In this talk, Felix will illustrate some of the machine learning challenges that his team faces to fulfill both the editorial and commercial needs of the 195-years-old publisher.

This talk is part of the NLIP Seminar Series series.
