Advertising click-prediction modeling on Amazon EKS

In digital advertising, the ad click-through rate (CTR) model predicts the probability of a click given the ads and context x (for example, shopping query, time of the day, device). The output of a CTR model can be seen as a conditional probability p(y = click|x). A precise estimation of this probability influences our ability […]
