Personalisation of user content on the web is increasingly becoming more and more important. One of the most important steps that content publishers can take, is to personalise content based on current user location. Current solutions for quickly searching though millions of POIs (points of interest) are few and far between.
This talk will present an overview of data structures, algorithms and open source solutions available for finding closest POIs to a given location in real time. Part of the talk will also be dedicated to the solution that Celtra implemented for its ad serving business.
