Mike Fisher, Chief Technology Officer of Etsy, will join Scale CEO Alexandr Wang for a fireside chat. Etsy’s systems process over 6 billion events each day. Etsy’s platform was originally created to link creators of unique items with people wanting to buy these one-of-a-kind pieces. In this fireside chat, Fisher discusses scaling the Etsy platform to support over 100 million buyers and 5 million sellers using machine learning. Fisher also discusses how the company has rebuilt many of its search engine capabilities with more intelligent algorithms to provide more accurate recommendations.
