Fabula AI Acquired by Twitter

Jun 04, 2019

Machine learning capabilities are improving exponentially and Twitter knows this — which is why the social media giant acquired Fabula AI a London-based start-up, which uses machine learning and graph deep learning to detect network manipulation.

According to Twitter’s announcement on its blog, “To continually advance the state of machine learning, inside and outside Twitter, we are building out a research group at Twitter, led by Sandeep Pandey, to focus on a few key strategic areas such as natural language processing, reinforcement learning, ML ethics, recommendation systems, and graph deep learning.” Acquiring Fabula AI is the latest step on this journey.

Twitter says, “Graph deep learning is a novel method for applying powerful ML techniques to network-structured data. The result is the ability to analyze very large and complex datasets describing relations and interactions, and to extract signals in ways that traditional ML techniques are not capable of doing.” The company sees this technology as a way to help people find the content they’re looking for, but also to help them “feel safe” on the platform.
