AI is changing how you watch TV

Netflix’s algorithms are enormously complex, offering selections based on your viewing history, the time of day, and even the places on your screen that get clicked most frequently when you search for your next binge-watch. When you click through the “Because You Watched” row, a video-to-video similarity algorithm compares everything in the Netflix library. Scrolling through specific genres automatically ranks titles based on a personalized video-ranking algorithm. There’s even an algorithm to track short-term trends to find the next cult classic. All of these algorithms work in perfect harmony to deliver you to 1.5 hours of entertainment bliss. – Alice Williams, VentureBeat http://ift.tt/2xxtudl
