  • 1. Autonomous Discovery the future interface? predictive computing anticipatory computing engineered serendipity …
  • 2. Dinesh VadhiaFounder/engineer at autonomous discovery startupwww.xyggy.com. Previously, senior product management rolesat Oracle and Sun in Silicon Valley and UK, with many years ofsoftware engineering first.Closely work with Professor Zoubin Ghahramani at CambridgeUniversity. One of the founding fathers of Bayesian machinelearning methods. dinesh@xyggy.com, @DineshVadhia
  • 3. The Autonomous AgeProbabilistic robotsCommercial unmanned aerial vehiclesSelf-driving cars
  • 4. Autonomous DiscoveryDiscover new things without doinganythingConvenience does matter> Keyword search volume? Probably
  • 5. Undefined IntentSearch intent defined by keywordsAutonomous discovery has undefinedintentWindow-shopping analogy
  • 6. New Bayesian ML AlgorithmDeals with things onlyData finds dataItem(s) per query
  • 7. Feature EngineeringThings defined by featuresCan mix multiple feature classes,including high- & low-level, unstructured& structured text, ratings, relevance,context and so on
  • 8. DynamicNo trainingDynamic predictions and rankingRelevance feedback 0.85634 0.83678 0.68321 0.59142
  • 9. ScalabilitySparsityIR + RecSysScalability
  • 10. Autonomous DiscoveryI am the query
  • 11. I Am the QueryGiven data about me, find new things I willlike.If I like a thing, find more like it, or removethis thing and others like it.Hit me with some serendipity.
