Criteo Faculty Research Awards: 2018

By: Criteo AI Lab / 13 Jul 2018

A couple of months ago we announced our call for applicants to the second edition of the Criteo Faculty Award Program. The intention of the program is to collaborate with our academic partners on research topics that are of mutual interest with the intent to publish the results of the collaboration at conferences and open source related data & software.

Once again, we were hard-pressed to vet down the final list of awardees to 8 and are very happy to announce the recipients for the 2018 edition of the Criteo Faculty Award Program.

For the 2018 edition, we partnered with the Hadamard Foundation via which we had issued a call for proposals, the Research Initiative on Recommendation Methods (IRMER), for our colleagues in France. Through this partnership, we have also funded a number of proposals in the “Mathematical Optimization Research Projects (PRMO) CFP” alongside other companies.

We are very much looking forward to sharing the results of these collaborations in future blog posts.

Congratulations to all our 2018 recipients!
