  That's nice to know! I know that some people use bandits for deciding
which advertisments to run; I'm actually currently negotiating a
contract to develop a system in a related area that would likely end up
using UCB (either combined with simple Bayesian networks or actually
UCT) for intelligently choosing which advertisment to show.
