Video now available, thank you to community member Carl Mullins for providing video services:
In this talk we will discuss how Whisper uses machine learning for natural language processing tasks. We will focus on how Whisper applies deep learning to moderate content created by its more than 20 million monthly active users. The talk will explore the problem of short text classification, and will cover Whisper’s choices in machine learning models, software development, and hardware.
