We recently hosted our first-ever London Facebook Engineering Fair. The invitation-only event gathered together software engineers, product managers, UX researchers, data scientists, academics, and others working in the technology industry. Several London-based teams gave attendees an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the products and technologies being worked on by our U.K. engineers. Director of Product for [...]
WHAT’S NEW: The first experimental back end for our Glow compiler and runtime project, designed to target Habana’s existing hardware accelerator. This back end is the first to customize for various vendors’ accelerators. Learn more about how hardware makers are working with our compiler and future plans for Glow. WHY IT MATTERS: Glow’s open source [...]
WHAT IT IS: A new tool from Facebook AI Research that enables training of multi-relation graph embeddings for very large graphs. PyTorch-BigGraph (PBG) handles graphs with billions of nodes and trillions of edges. Since PBG is written in PyTorch, researchers and engineers can easily swap in their own loss functions, models, and other components. Read [...]

We recently named the winners of our Mechanism Design for Social Good research awards. Inspired by an independent organization, the Mechanism Design for Social Good, this award targets the unique opportunities to design new mechanisms on top of mobile devices and social networks — mechanisms that lead to meaningful connections that otherwise would not have [...]
