Facebook Graph Search: Personalized Search of a Trillion Connections

Speaker: Stanislav Basovník
(graduated from MFF UK in 2010, Software Engineer at Facebook since 2012)

Abstract: More than 1 billion people actively use Facebook, so far sharing more than 240 billion photos and 1 trillion connections. Graph Search offers a new way to traverse those connections, providing a new type of search for people, photos, places, and interests. Everyone's search results are personalized and privacy-aware, which entails real-time fetching, filtering, ranking and diversification of the results. Any piece of data is subject to changes in privacy settings, which need to be reflected on the results instantly. On top of that, Graph Search has a unique user interface that uses natural language processing to parse the user input and to render page titles. This talk will give an overview of the system architecture and present the past and present engineering challenges.
