Google Technical Talk at NYU:
"Online Ad Auction Mechanisms and Bidding Strategies"
Date: Thursday, September 20th, 2007
Location: Warren Weaver Hall, Room 109
Speaker: Muthu Muthukrishnan
Recap: The Google Tech Talk held on Thursday was a great success!
We had over 100 people attend and everyone
seemed to be of different academic backgrounds, which is awesome.
The speaker Muthu, an alumnus of Courant, gave
a presentation on bidding strategies and some
of the technical mechanisms Google uses.
He answered questions from the audience and was very receptive to all inquiries.
Google came equipped with Lombardi's pizza,
goodies, a raffle, and nifty Google swag.
A panel of Googlers affiliated with NYU
also attended and fielded questions from
students about what it's like to work there.
Thanks to all who attended, and we hope you
enjoyed the event as much as we did!
