In order to provide a positive user experience, a gig economy marketplace must be able to facilitate optimal matches between contract workers and jobs. In my presentation I will share our learnings from building recommendation systems for the Field Nation online marketplace. I will also further discuss the latest AI technologies included in this work, such as: Pyro/PyTorch for Bayesian inference and text categorization based on universal language models.
