Abstract/Description:
Online advertising [100], as a multi-billion dollar business, provides a common marketing experience when people access online services using electronic devices, such as desktop computers, tablets, smartphones, and so on. Using the Internet as a means of advertising, different stakeholders take actions in the background to provide and deliver advertisements to users through numerous platforms, such as search engines, news sites, and social networks, where dedicated spots of areas are used to display advertisements (ads) along with search results, posts, or page content. Online advertising is mainly based on dynamically selecting ads through a real-time bidding (or auction) mechanism. Predicting user responses like clicking ads in e-commerce platforms and internet-based advertising systems, as the first measurable user response, is an essential step for many digital advertising and recommendation systems to capture the user’s propensity to follow up actions, such as purchasing a product or subscribing to a service. To maximize revenue and user satisfaction, online advertising platforms must predict the expected user behavior of each displayed advertisement and maximize the user’s expectations of clicking [28]. Based on this observed feedback, these systems are tailored to user preferences to decide the order in that ads or any promoted content should be served to them. This objective provides an incentive to develop new research by using ideas derived from different domains like machine learning and data mining combined with models for information retrieval and mathematical optimization. They introduce different machine learning and data mining methods that employ deep learning-based predictive models to learn the representation of input features with the aim of user response prediction. Feature representation learning is known as a fundamental task on how to input information is going to be represented in machine learning models. A good feature representation learning method that seeks to learn low-dimensional embedding vectors is a key factor for the success of many downstream analytics tasks, such as click-through prediction and conversion prediction in recommendation systems and online advertising platforms.
