Connecting the Global Workforce with AI

In a world inundated with data, AI and machine learning are indispensable for making sense of the data we have at scale. At LinkedIn, we’ve built the Economic Graph, a digital representation of the global economy made up of over 660 million members, 36 thousand skills, 30 million companies, 20 million open jobs, and 90 thousand schools.
