Abstract


Click-through rate (CTR) prediction plays a central role in online advertising and recommendation systems. In recent years, with the successful application of deep neural networks (DNNs) in many fields, researchers have integrated deep learning into CTR prediction algorithms to model implicit high-order features. However, most of these existing methods unify the weights of implicit higher-order features to predict user behaviors. The importance of such features of different dimensions for predicting user click behaviors are different. Base on this, we propose a prediction method that dynamically learns the importance of implicit high-order features. Specifically, we integrate the output features of deep and shallow components, and adaptively learn the weights of implicit high-order features from among all features through the designed attention network, which effectively capturing the deep interests of users. In addition, this framework has strong versatility and can be combined with shallow models such as Logistic Regression (LR) and Factorization Machines (FMs) to form different models and achieve optimal performance. The extended experiment is conducted on two large-scale datasets, AVAZU and SafeDrive, and the experimental results show that the performance of the proposed model is superior to that of existing baseline models.
