Subject Re: How to score the model? (lift)
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:00:28 GMT
I know of at least one good A/B testing service that uses JavaScript
at the Front End. So that would work and it wouldn't not touch the
PIO+UR stack. But your answer made me think of something else: Is
there a way to score two models with PIO?  Maybe Google Analytics is
still preferable even for that task...

So channel some traffic to a page “without recommendations” and some amount of traffic
to a page “with recommendations” and measure your conversion KPI for both cases. If your
conversion is a sale or purchase you may have to split all users permanently over the test
period. if you are only measuring CTR you may be able to split impressions since you don’t
have to track users as a group all the way to a purchase.
