The Language program, which is one of our core science programs, aims to automatically create a well-organized product catalog using advanced NLP and ML technologies to generate structured information from unstructured product titles, descriptions, and images. We are also interested in leveraging weakly/semi-supervised and unsupervised techniques to incorporate signals beyond traditional sources, such as customer behavior data, to augment our language understanding. We are looking for research scientists with a strong research background in the NLP field and strong motivation to join the Language program.
