June 11, 2019 - Josh Hall of Prolific London writes: 'AI as a service' business Scibids has announced its entry into the UK adtech market.

Scibids uses artificial intelligence to optimise programmatic ad campaigns, adding an AI "layer" on top of DSPs to act as a 'virtual trader'.

The company's offering works with DSPs including Google's DV360, The Trade Desk, MediaMath, and AppNexus.
