ABOUT EVENT

Fighting Abuse @Scale brings together engineers, data scientists, product managers, operations specialists, and others fighting fraud, spam, and abuse on the internet at massive scale. At this one-day conference, practitioners will hear presentations on state-of-the art technologies used to protect people on the internet and have the opportunity to discuss abuse fighting with like-minded people from around the industry.

The conference builds on the successful Spam Fighting @Scale conferences of May 2015 and November 2016, and will feature speakers from Facebook, LinkedIn, Airbnb, Microsoft, and others, talking about recent advances in stopping bad guys on the internet. In this iteration we will focus particularly on techniques and experiences with artificial intelligence and machine learning in abuse fighting.

The invitation-only event will feature invited talks, a happy hour, and a “birds-of-a-feather” lunch where attendees can join organized discussions around a particular subtopic of abuse fighting.
