Using AI and Machine Learning to Improve User Safety

Heads up: we’re building a Machine Learning system to fight scam artists.

In the past, we’ve relied on our community and moderators to categorize listings and report suspicious ads. We’ve made great progress by automating most of this work with a flexible rules engine. Today, we’re feeding years of training data into an experimental distributed Machine Learning System to help us scale this process to the next level.

We’ll be posting updates on the progress and some stats as more data becomes available.
