We are happy to announce a new challenge on exploration and exploitation in conjunction with an ICML’2012 workshop.
The dataset provided by Yahoo! contains user click logs for news articles displayed in the Featured Tab of the Today Module on Yahoo!
The goal is to optimize the choice of the article to display with respect to a user description in order to gather the maximum number of clicks.
Key dates :
March 9th : Opening of the Challenge
June 1st: End of the first part of the Challenge
July 1st: Announcement of final result

We hope to see you in Edinburgh!
