During an October 2018 meetup, members of our Women in Statistics, Data, Optimization, and Machine Learning (WiSDOM) group presented on their technical work at Uber.
Uber's Head of Urban Computing & Visualization reflects on his team's work visualizing data to better understand urban mobility in 2018—and beyond.
Uber's many data flows required modeling the data associated with a specific task, such as a rider trip, into a state machine. The state machine lets engineers focus on just the events needed to successfully accomplish a trip.
Quantile treatment effects (QTEs) enable our data scientists to capture the inherent heterogeneity in treatment effects when riders and drivers interact within the Uber marketplace.
Responsible for cleaning, storing, and serving over 100 petabytes of analytical data, Uber's Hadoop platform ensures data reliability, scalability, and ease-of-use with minimal latency.
Uber Visualization announces partnership with Mapbox to enhance our data visualization tools and grow our open source community.
Today we introduce Marmaray, an open source framework allowing data ingestion and dispersal for Apache Hadoop, realizing our vision of any-sync-to-any-source functionality, including data format validation.
In an interview for the Uber Eng blog, Data Scientist Sunny Jeon talks about how his team develops solutions in order to advance Uber's core value of safety.
In this article, we provide a general overview of how our teams leverage forecasting to build better products and maintain the health of the Uber marketplace.
Uber's experimentation platform empowers us to improve the customer experience by allowing teams to launch, debug, measure, and monitor product changes.
Uber developed Maze, our funnel visualization platform, to identify possible UX bottlenecks and provide insight into the various ways riders and drivers interact with our platform.
Databook, Uber's in-house platform for surfacing and exploring contextual metadata, makes dataset discovery and exploration easier for teams across the company.
Facing the need for a resilient data structure over thousands of storage nodes to serve the 15 million rides per day that occur on our platform, Uber engineers developed Herb, our data replication solution. Herb ensures data availability and integrity across our data centers.
With a solid margin, Uber senior data scientist Slawek Smyl won the M4 Competition with his hybrid Exponential Smoothing-Recurrent Neural Networks (ES-RNN) forecasting method.
Uber engineers share how we process search terms for our Uber Eats service, using query understanding and expansion to find restaurants and menu items that best match what our eaters want.
From Beautiful Maps to Actionable Insights: Introducing kepler.gl, Uber’s Open Source Geospatial Toolbox
Created by Uber's Visualization team, kepler.gl is an open source data agnostic, high-performance web-based application for large-scale geospatial visualizations.
deck.gl v5 incorporates simplified APIs, scripting support, and framework agnosticism, making the popular open source data visualization software more accessible than ever before.
Uber Labs leverages mediation modeling to better understand the relationship between product updates and their outcomes, leading to improved customer experiences on our platform.
Written in Haskell, Queryparser is Uber Engineering's open source tool for parsing and analyzing SQL queries that makes it easy to identify foreign-key relationships in large data warehouses.
Uber Engineering extended our anomaly detection platform's ability to integrate new forecast models, allowing this critical on-call service to scale to meet more complex use cases.
