Product @Scale 2024

August 14, 2024

Product @Scale conferences are designed for technologists who work on solving complex product problems at scale. The @Scale community focuses on bringing forward people's experiences in creating innovative solutions to large-scale products serving millions or even billions of creators, people, and businesses involving complex product and business tradeoffs and challenging engineering problems to overcome.

Product @Scale 2024 will be hosted virtually by Meta. Joining us are eminent speakers from Google, Fireworks.AI, Roblox, Microsoft, and AI experts from across Meta, who will be sharing their unique perspectives. The event will showcase a keynote address by Rajesh Nishtala, Distinguished Software Infrastructure Engineer at Meta. The conference will also feature talks themed around the latest advances in AI and how they are being utilized to build Products, the challenges of building products at scale using AI Tech, and how AI is changing the way we use and interact with Products.

Fireworks AI: Go from Hype to High-Value AI

In AI development, moving from hype to high-value means optimizing base models into specialized versions. This presentation shows the benefits of smaller, focused models that outperform proprietary mega-models ones in latency, throughput, and cost-efficiency. Learn practical methods, real-world examples, and best practices for moving from prototype to production. Discover how Fireworks AI helps developers go from idea to application with the fastest and most efficient inference platform. Additionally, explore how AI developers are creating compound AI systems, combining multiple models and components to tackle the most challenging AI tasks.

Confidently Building Social Connection: How Write with AI on Facebook Support User Generated Content

Facebook's new tool, Write with AI, is designed to enhance user-generated content by helping users overcome common writing challenges like writer's block and tone misalignment. Leveraging the advanced LLaMa3 model, the tool offers real-time editing suggestions and personalized responses to user prompts, significantly improving the clarity and engagement of social media posts. Since its launch, Write with AI has increased the overall share rate of posts, indicating a substantial improvement in user satisfaction. The tool is set to expand further, incorporating features like auto-completion and contextually rich photo captions (LlaMa3-multimodal), aiming to transform digital communication on Facebook by making it more personal and expressive.

Speaker Joena Zhang,META
01:40 PM - 02:00 PM
Talking to Others for You: Leveraging Machines that Speak the “Human Conversation” Protocol

In recent years it’s become much easier to talk to machines freely. But rather than talking to machines ourselves, can we have machines talk to others for us? Communication (e.g. phone calls) is an API to the real world. By teaching machines this “protocol of human conversation” we can tap into any service built for humans with instant deployment at zero integration work by any remote party, creating value for both sides. Of course, doing this at scale in consistently high quality and guaranteeing safety and privacy remains challenging. In this talk we bring several tips and advice from having deployed the technology called Google Duplex to several such applications in production, at scale.

Speaker Yoav Tzur,Google
02:00 PM - 02:20 PM
AI Generated Animation and Video: A Look at the Industry and Meta

First will speak about the history of generative AI Media products in the industry, followed by products at Meta itself. Then the product development journey / learnings from it, followed by lessons from the launches themselves. Talk about new stuff that will be launching before the talk but I can't write here yet. Talk about the future and what's to come and what challenges are we excited to take on for those future products.
