Abstract:

Systems have emerged in the past decade that enable advertisements (ads) on the Internet. Such Internet ad systems handle billions of transactions every day involving millions of users, websites and advertisers. They crucially rely on real-time auctions and optimizations, even while nearly all parties involved from marketeers to publishers strategize. In this talk, I will provide an overview of Internet ad systems and discuss challenges, with special emphasis on Ad Exchanges.
