Computer Science Colloquium: Brooke Cowan, OHSU

"Behind the Scenes: A View into how Expedia Employs Machine
Learning and Data Science" - 

Are you interested in how data science is used to enhance
one of the world's leading travel platforms?  This talk will explain
how machine learning is integrated into Expedia's online
experience. After walking through a typical customer interaction with
the Expedia website and exposing places where machine learning models
are at work, Dr. Cowan will discuss how one of her former team's
projects, image moderation, moved from prototype to production. The
talk will close with some practical considerations for deploying
machine learning models in an industry setting.

Dr. Brooke Cowan worked at Expedia for over six years, first as
a Machine Learning Scientist and then as Director of Data Science. She
holds a MS and PhD from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial
Intelligence Laboratory. She is currently working with Prof. Steven
Bedrick as a Senior Research Associate at the Center for Spoken
Language Understanding at OHSU.
