  • $\begingroup$ Bandit package takes 2 inputs trials and successes and based on that gives me a probability of success of a arm. I couldn't figure how to modify the code in the book to this. ( i am a newbie, a little help would be useful) $\endgroup$ – karan sindwani Mar 14 '16 at 6:45
  • $\begingroup$ @karan please specifiy exactly what portion of the code you did not follow and an example of what you have tried out $\endgroup$ – wabbit Mar 14 '16 at 6:59
  • $\begingroup$ The current implementation involves randomly choosing an arm and recording the reward. But my problem statement is - n ads are running with each of budget B. Now i want to re -distribute budget nB among n ads based on the success probability of ad. (prob can be calculated with revenue and trial metric of each ad) $\endgroup$ – karan sindwani Mar 14 '16 at 7:17
