Instagram invites the academic community and industry peers to join the first Instagram Workshop on Recommendation Systems at Scale, taking place virtually on Thursday, September 23. Those interested may register at the link below.


Production recommendation systems in large social and commerce platforms introduce complex and unprecedented challenges. The goal of this workshop is to bring together leading researchers and practitioners in related fields to share knowledge and explore research collaboration opportunities between academia and industry.

“Every day, we help over a billion people connect with their friends, interests, businesses, and creators they love on Instagram. To ensure that a community of this size finds new and inspiring content, we need to constantly evolve our recommendation systems technology. Collaborating with like-minded industry and academic experts allows us to do just that,” says Aameek Singh, Engineering Director, Instagram.
