Automattic, a fully distributed company, utilizes a unique internal blogging network known as P2 for team communication. Due to the vast volume of posts and comments, employees often struggle with the fear of missing out (FOMO) on important content. To address this, a team of data and machine learning experts initiated a hack project that developed a new solution to highlight personalized and relevant P2 content. The tool, P2 FOMO, recommends P2s in real time, tracks already read posts, and provides AI summaries, improving both productivity and company culture.
Explore the journey of how Automattic leverages the power of optimization and genetic algorithms to transform our meetups into more engaging and meaningful experiences. Our post delves into the creation of Dinnermattic, a hack project designed to foster stronger relationships among our globally distributed team.
