Why Apple And Google Are Titans

This is the first essay in our series of 10 Lessons From 10 Years Of The World’s Most Innovative Companies. There was a time when Google and Apple represented two very different, and opposed, models of technology. Googlers were the engineering brainiacs, adept with algorithms and champions of open-source, share-what-you-know code. Applers were design aesthetes, who kept their ideas behind guarded doors and only rolled out internally crafted, fully controlled end-to-end experiences.

How Pinterest’s visual search went from a moonlight project to a real-world search engine

Sometime around 2013 and 2014, deep learning was going through a revolution that required pretty much everyone to reset their expectations as to how things worked, and leveled the playing field for what people were doing with computer vision. At least that’s the philosophy that Pinterest engineer Andrew Zhai and his team have taken, because around that time he and a few others began working on some internal moonlight project to build computer vision models within Pinterest.
