Did You Think Artificial Intellegence and Machine Learning Were Being Used By Big Tech To Solve The World’s Problems? Fat Chance!: Actually, limited super high power computer resources that could be used working on curing cancer or some other miracle are instead being used to determine which YouTube videos to recommend to you to keep you on the site. That tells you something about their priorities! Google/YouTube are feeding these systems all the data they collect on you, so it can make their web content ever more addictive. Publicly, the platform says it’s trying to minimize the “amplification of extreme content” (Privately, they have been caught admiting to using it to minimize exposure of political opinions they don’t agree with!). They are always looking for ways to keep users on the site longer, because more time on their site is more advertising income. An overall increase of just 0.24% in viewer “watch time” equates to tens of millions of dollars.
If you want to see just one example just how manipulated we all are by super computers, social media and big tech, read this article from The MIT Technology Review. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/614432/youtube-algorithm-gets-more-addictive/
