The event will be held at the Javitz Center in New York City from September 11th – 13th.

Talroo powers billions of searches to help connect job seekers with opportunities. The presentation, “Job recommendations leveraging Deep Learning using Analytics Zoo on Apache Spark and BigDL” will explore how the HR technology industry can make job search/match more relevant for candidates by leveraging deep learning techniques. Jacob Eisinger, director of data at Talroo, Wenjing Zhan, data scientist at Talroo, and Guoquing Song, software engineer at Intel, will demonstrate how to leverage distributed deep learning framework BigDL on Apache Spark to predict a candidate’s probability of applying to specific jobs based on their resume.

“Deep learning is a leap forward in machine learning. It provides a significant opportunity to boost job candidate quality when used correctly with natural language processing. Intel’s BigDL and Analytics Zoo are a great fit and make it easy to explore and implement these wins. In this low unemployment environment, it’s essential to match candidates to jobs in the best way possible, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to share our success at the Strata conference,” said Eisinger.
