Sponsored search algorithms
These days I work in algorithms for sponsored search auctions, and there is a slow pipeline of publications emerging. Jon Feldman, a NYer (notwithstanding his vestigial affection for Red Sox), has been giving talks on these algorithmic issues recently at Yale and MIT. Cliff Stein gave a talk at Bertinoro. I am looking forward to giving a talk at MAPSP 2007 organized by Kirk Pruhs in Istanbul. New area, results, talks, pictures and looks!
