Budgeted Online Influence Maximization

Pierre Perrault, Jennifer Healey, Zheng Wen, Michal Valko
2020 International Conference on Machine Learning  
Our approach models better the realworld setting where the cost of influencers varies and advertizers want to find the best value for their overall social advertising budget.  ...  We introduce a new budgeted framework for online influence maximization, considering the total cost of an advertising campaign instead of the common cardinality constraint on a chosen influencer set.  ...  Introduction Viral marketing through online social networks now represents a significant part of many digital advertising budgets.  ...

Budgeted Online Collective Inference

Jay Pujara, Ben London, Lise Getoor
2015 Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence  
In this paper, we introduce budgeted online collective inference, in which the MAP configuration of a graphical model is updated efficiently by revising the assignments to a subset of the variables while  ...  These theoretical insights, combined with a thorough analysis of the optimization solver, motivate new approximate methods for efficiently updating the variable assignments under a budget constraint.  ...  BUDGETED ONLINE INFERENCE The bounds presented in Section 3.1 suggest that online collective inference under budget constraints is close to the full inference update when one is able to successfully choose  ...

Smart Advertisement for Maximal Clicks in Online Social Networks Without User Data [article]

Nathaniel Hudson, Hana Khamfroush, Brent Harrison, Adam Craig
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Click-through rate (CTR) prediction of advertisements on online social network platforms to optimize advertising is of much interest.  ...  Given a certain budget k, we are interested in finding the optimal combination of conceptual nodes that maximize the CTR.  ...  We are additionally motivated to gain high-level insights to better understand what interests lead to higher CTR across advertisements and, more generally, across information shared on online social media  ...

The Effects of Shelf Display on Online Grocery Choices

Els Breugelmans, Katia Campo, Els Gijsbrechts
2006 Social Science Research Network  
In this paper, we examine whether and how such shelf effects translate into an online grocery context.  ...  These primacy and proximity effects have a stronger impact on choice decisions when assortments are more difficult to evaluate and when a clear shelf organization facilitates the use of shelf-based choice  ...  We examine whether traditional shelf effects prevail for online choices and -if so -how they translate to a virtual store context.  ...

Determinants of voluntary online local budget transparency

Katarina Ott, Velibor Mačkić, Mihaela Bronić, Branko Stanić
2019 Ekonomski Pregled  
This article analyses the determinants of the voluntary online local budget transparency (OLBT) of Croatian local governments.  ...  The findings show that local governments with higher residents' per capita income, population, Internet access, and administrative and fi scal capacity voluntarily publish more budget documents online.  ...  The Ministry of Finance (2012) recommended publishing budget proposals online and printing and/or posting the citizens' budgets online. However, no sanctions are imposed.  ...
