To lead its product developments, Sharechat has also brought on former Uber product leader Gaurav Mishra. At Uber, Mishra led Uber AI, Data, and Marketplace Platforms. He had also co-founded a regional language search engine platform Guruji.com which was acquired by Flipkart.
At the Silicon Valley lab, Sharechat will build on artificial intelligence and machine learning driven capabilities for both its social media platform as well as its recently launched video platform Moj.
"We are building both ShareChat and Moj with a future-ready approach. We would focus on building new products and solutions around camera technology and AI/ML (especially focusing on deep learning). We would also look at hiring the best technology minds globally and not just limited to India. We would soon expand our talent base to other international geographies and drive excellence in technology innovations in the Indian internet space,” said Mishra.
By bringing on board global talent, the company said that it will look into “developing state of the art deep learning ML (machine learning) models to better personalize the user feed and detect NSFW content, hate speech and fake news with a goal to enhance the experience of it's community of creators and users.”
NSFW refers to “not safe for work” for content, videos and images that a user should refrain from in a public environment.
