We built a backtesting service to better assess financial forecast model error rates, facilitating improved forecast performance and decision making.
Suzette Puente, Uber Data Science Manager, shares how she applies her graduate work in statistics to forecast traffic patterns and generate better routes.
We spoke to Data Science Director Fran Bell about machine learning at Uber and what she finds most challenging—and rewarding—about her work.
Metropolis-Hastings Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) leverage the discriminator to pick better samples from the generator after ML model training is done.
Samuel Zemedkun reflects on his immigrant experience and how his part-time driving through the Uber platform funded his education and inspired his decision to join the company.
Uber built Michelangelo, our machine learning platform, in 2015. Three years later, we reflect our journey to scaling ML at Uber and lessons learned along the way.
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’s Observability Applications team overhauled our anomaly detection platform’s workflow to enable the intuitive and performant backfilling of forecasts, paving the way for more intelligent alerting.
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.
Uber Engineering created Omphalos, our new backtesting framework, to enable efficient and reliable comparison of forecasting models across languages.
Uber Engineering introduces a new Bayesian neural network architecture that more accurately forecasts time series predictions and uncertainty estimations.
A daylong event at Uber’s Palo Alto office, sponsored by our LadyEng group, showcased the technical work across Uber Engineering as well as the people who are leading and building these projects. Here are some of the resulting presentations.
