Appier based on a study conducted on its own network demonstrated the ability of an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based model to fight ad fraud.

The report showed that an AI-based fraud detection model was able to identify twice as many fraudulent transactions as a traditional rule-based model.

Ad fraud has become a major threat to the online advertising industry and is projected to cost advertisers billions of dollars.
