Our Goals
Creating intelligent machines that understand information in depth(text, images, videos, comments, etc.) to better serve our users with what they like. Developing large scale machine learning algorithms for personalized information recommendation.
Problems we are working on
Finding experts for community raised;questions by 700 million users Creating machines that can write stories like professional reporters Enable machines to parse object, human, scene, and activities in videos
Areas of Interest
Machine Learning/ Recommendation System/ Natural language processing and understanding/ Human computer interaction interface
Toutiao AI Lab at Beijing invites applicants for researchers in artificial intelligence at all levels. Toutiao’s main product, Headline Today, is employing AI technologies to deliver news and information to 700 million total users. Toutiao AI Lab’s mission is to promote cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence, and to transfer technologies into our products for better serving our hundreds of millions of users. We aim at pushing the limits of machine intelligence. We are looking for exceptional individuals from all area of artificial intelligence, who have a track record of research excellence, a passion to shape the future of AI, and the potential to become an outstanding leader in the field.
