Using AI and Machine Learning to Improve User Safety

moderator

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.

Added RSS Feeds for eBayClassifieds.com (former Kijiji.com)

Added pilot RSS feeds for  eBayClassifieds (former Kijiji)

The majority of ads on eBayClassifieds are posted by private sellers (!), have clear description, pictures  and appear to be spam-free. I wonder if their ads are also pre-screened to filter out questionable posts  /:-|

 

RSS have been created for Cars & Trucks, Boats, Motorcycles, RVs and Car Parts for Major US cities. Enjoy.

Now working on creating RSS feeds to the remaining US regions and other categories..
