Airbnb is built on trust, and keeping our global community of hosts and guests safe is our top priority. In this talk, we will go over how we approach detecting and deterring risk and fraudulent activity in real time on Airbnb. We will touch on several techniques, from machine learning, to deep learning, to graph analysis, to large scale systems programming, to computer vision, to natural language processing to examine financial transactions, text, photo and video content to ensure that it is safe and trusted. We will go over some case studies to share the lessons with other members of the community, other companies and security researchers to empower everyone to build safer and more trusted products, platforms and communities.

• Attendees of this session will learn about automated fraud mitigation techniques: how to apply machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision and to detect bad actors.
