Deep Learning for Image Understanding at Scale


I will discuss the successful strategies found and challenges encountered when building deep learning systems for object recognition at scale, using automatic labels in Flickr image search as a case study.


Stacey develops computer vision systems as part of the Yahoo Vision and Machine Learning team with a focus on Flickr, applying deep learning to object recognition, photographic style classification, aesthetics, emoji prediction, etc. She previously worked on an image search engine based on visual similarity with LookFlow, which Yahoo acquired in 2013. She holds a BS and MS from Stanford in Symbolic Systems.
