Speaker Alan Mislove Abstract The enormous financial success of online advertising platforms is partially due to the precise targeting and delivery features they offer. These platforms routinely claim to be able to identify which platform users are most likely to meet advertisers’ objectives, and steer ads towards those users via their ad delivery algorithms. This is typically accomplished by estimating the “relevance” of ads to users, but raises a number of concerns about bias, discrimin...

Speaker Shikha Singh Abstract We consider the problem of timely reporting of heavy hitters in streaming data. Given an input stream of size N, a f-heavy hitter is an item that occurs at least fN times in S. The problem of finding approximate heavy hitters has been extensively studied in the streaming literature. We study a real-time and exact heavy-hitters variant in which an element must be reported shortly after we see its fN-th occurrence (and hence becomes a heavy hitter). We call thi...
