Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Computational Advertising


Digital advertising is estimated at $87B in 2020 in the US alone. Ubiquitous and highly visible, advertising interacts with nearly everyone. From selecting ads to calculating costs to deciding where and how to display them, billions of computational decisions are made every day in this challenging field. In this talk, we will discuss some of the terms and solutions for computational advertising.
