Title: Deep Learning for Predicting Domain Prices
Speaker: Jason Ansel, Distinguished Engineer at GoDaddy

Learn how GoDaddy uses neural networks to predict the price of a
domain name in the aftermarket. GoDaddy Domain Appraisals (GoValue) is
available to millions of GoDaddy customers and provides estimated
values to help both buyers and sellers more effectively price domain
names. GoValue is 1.25x better at predicting past domain name sale
prices than human experts.

This talk will explain the hybrid recurrent neural networks behind
GoValue. It will discuss some of the practical aspects of scaling and
deploying a sophisticated machine learning system. Finally, we will
dive into recent research at GoDaddy that created a new neural network
structure for outputting tighter prediction intervals than preexisting
