2015 Proceedings of the 21th ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining - KDD '15  
We study and formulate arbitrage in display advertising.  ...  In essence, our SAMer is a meta-bidder that hedges advertisers' risk between CPA (cost per action)-based campaigns and CPM (cost per mille impressions)-based ad inventories; it statistically assesses the  ...  We thank the engineers Tianchi Zhu, Jie Liu, Lei Gong, Yanjun He and Zhao Yang for helping conduct the online experiment on BigTree DSP.  ...

Adaptive Modeling for Real Time Analytics: The Case of "Big Data" in Mobile Advertising

Donald Kridel, Daniel Dolk, David Castillo
2015 2015 48th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
In this environment, analytic modeling must be automated viq model feedback loops which adjust the models dynamically as real time data streams in. We call this mode of analytics adaptive modeling.  ...  Performance thresholds are roughly l00ms for DSPs to decide whether and how much to bidfor a potential client to receive a particular advertisement via their mobile dwice.  ...  We describe below an alternative scenario for "on the fly", dynamic real-time modeling based upon automated models, which adapt to real-time customer behavior via model feedback loops.  ...

Real Time Bid Optimization with Smooth Budget Delivery in Online Advertising [article]

Kuang-Chih Lee, Ali Jalali, Ali Dasdan
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Today, billions of display ad impressions are purchased on a daily basis through a public auction hosted by real time bidding (RTB) exchanges.  ...  Our algorithm tries to select high quality impressions and adjust the bid price based on the prior performance distribution in an adaptive manner by distributing the budget optimally across time.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Xi Yang and Changgull Song for testing the entire bid optimization framework in the staging environment.  ...

Display Advertising with Real-Time Bidding (RTB) and Behavioural Targeting [article]

Jun Wang, Weinan Zhang, Shuai Yuan
2017 arXiv   pre-print
The most significant progress in recent years in online display advertising is what is known as the Real-Time Bidding (RTB) mechanism to buy and sell ads.  ...  The covered topics include user response prediction, bid landscape forecasting, bidding algorithms, revenue optimisation, statistical arbitrage, dynamic pricing, and ad fraud detection.  ...  Lift-based bidding The traditional bidding strategies discussed in Chapter 5 are called valuebased bidding strategies as the bidding is based on the estimated value (i.e. utility) of the potential impression  ...

Real-Time Bidding with Side Information

Arthur Flajolet, Patrick Jaillet
2017 Neural Information Processing Systems  
We consider the problem of repeated bidding in online advertising auctions when some side information (e.g. browser cookies) is available ahead of submitting a bid in the form of a d-dimensional vector  ...  The goal for the advertiser is to maximize the total utility (e.g. the total number of clicks) derived from displaying ads given that a limited budget B is allocated for a given time horizon T .  ...  Acknowledgments Research funded in part by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) grant N00014-15-1-2083.  ...

Smart Pacing for Effective Online Ad Campaign Optimization

Jian Xu, Kuang-chih Lee, Wentong Li, Hang Qi, Quan Lu
2015 Proceedings of the 21th ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining - KDD '15  
Since lots of impressions are traded through public auctions for online advertising today, the liquidity makes price elasticity and bid landscape between demand and supply change quite dynamically.  ...  In targeted online advertising, advertisers look for maximizing campaign performance under delivery constraint within budget schedule.  ...  The market has witnessed the emergence of search advertising, contextual advertising, guaranteed display advertising, and more recently auction-based advertising exchanges.  ...

Bidding Machine: Learning to Bid for Directly Optimizing Profits in Display Advertising

Kan Ren, Weinan Zhang, Ke Chang, Yifei Rong, Yong Yu, Jun Wang
2018 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
Real-time bidding (RTB) based display advertising has become one of the key technological advances in computational advertising.  ...  In RTB, the advertisers face three main challenges when optimizing their bidding strategies, namely (i) estimating the utility (e.g., conversions, clicks) of the ad impression, (ii) forecasting the market  ...  Second, based on the derived bidding function, we discuss that a tragedy of the commons situation exists among multiple advertisers with the same optimal bidding strategy in RTB display advertising.  ...
