Title:

Machine Learning Challenges at Google Ads

Abstract:

While we have made significant advances in the last two decades, serving the most relevant ads to our users is still a big challenge to date. In particular, commercial contents are full of images, videos in addition to textual information, and understanding our advertiser products and offers from their ad creatives and landing pages poses interesting multimodal modeling problems. In this talk, we will discuss a new multimodal task (Multi-Image Summarization) and the associated dataset we are releasing. We will also talk about our recent work which co-embeds text and image in a shared embedding space to improve a cross-modal retrieval task. Then we will share some challenges & experiences from quality improvements in Search Ads products.
