    Listen in to learn about the innovative platform Buzzfeed has developed to:

    • Capture data and feed it to a centralized hub for real-time analysis;
    • Support collaboration between engineers, data scientists and content creators;
    • Select the right features to identify posts that should be translated into other languages;
    • Balance rapid experimentation with product stability, and effectively publish their data to different consumers internally.
