Twitter Is Now Using A Trendy Type Of AI To Figure Out Which Tweets To Show You
Twitter today said it has begun to use artificial intelligence (A.I.) to recommend certain tweets in users’ timelines.
The announcement comes a week after billionaire Mark Cuban told CNBC that he had recently begun buying Twitter stock because he believed “they finally got their act together with artificial intelligence.”
Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and other companies have previously attempted to improve various products using deep learning, a trendy type of A.I. Twitter has brought on people who are talented in this area through acquisitions of companies such as Magic Pony, and it has open-sourced some of its deep learning software. But the company has not been especially transparent about its progress.
