Maximizing Process Performance with Maze, Uber’s Funnel Visualization Platform

At Uber, we spend a considerable amount of resources making the driver sign-up experience as easy as possible. At Uber’s scale, even a one percent increase in the rate of sign-ups to first trips (the driver conversion rate) carries a monumental impact. In December 2016, Uber data scientist Andrey Liscovich hypothesized that traditional funnel analytics tools were not adequate for studying the actual driver sign-up experience because they treated it as a fixed sequence of steps, while in practice, the…

Enable Private DNS with 1.1.1.1 on Android 9 Pie

But things changed in 2015, and the company where I was working was affected. I saw one of my teammates get laid off and I was uncertain and worried about my own future—should I look for a change, or just await my fate? I knew this…

A New Graph Convolutional Neural Network for Web-Scale Recommender Systems

Ruining He | Pinterest engineer, Pinterest Labs Deep learning methods have achieved unprecedented performance on a broad range of machine learning and artificial intelligence tasks like visual recognition, speech recognition and machine translation. However, despite amazing progress, deep learning research has mainly focused on data defined on Euclidean domains, such as grids (e.g., images) and sequences (e.g., speech, text). Nonetheless, most interesting data, and challenges, are defined on non-Euclidean domains such as graphs, manifolds and recommender systems. The main question…

Can radar replace stethoscopes?

Researchers at FAU’s Institute of Electronics Engineering have developed a radar system which enables touch-free monitoring of heart sounds. The red beams show where the measurement is being made. Credit: FAU/Kilin Shi Along with a white coat, a stethoscope is the hallmark of doctors everywhere. Stethoscopes are used to diagnose the noises produced by the heart and lungs. Used in the conventional way, vibrations from the surface of the body are transmitted to a membrane in the chest-piece and then…
