  1. Machine learning…yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I work in this industry, and it breaks my heart to see how much time and effort goes into useless recommender systems like this. People often share fun deep learning activities such as go or image/video processing. However, it is nonsense like this that dominates what businesses actually do. On occasion, I despise my line of work.

  2. One of the most vexing aspects of YouTube’s recommendation algorithm is how it treats playlists. I’ll watch 20 episodes of a 67-episode Let’s Play in a row, then the **22nd** episode will be the first or second video in my suggestions the next day. What is the reason for this? Put a stop to it!

  3. The YouTube algorithm is like your Aunt who buys you owl-themed gifts for every occasion only because you said you liked owls when you were four years old. You’re having owl salt and pepper shakers as a wedding present 20 years later….

  4. Keep in mind the “42,000 reasons why THING would kill you” and “Why THING is the best thing on the planet” lists.

  5. I always watch 3D modeling videos on YouTube, and it still amuses me that The Algorithm refers to that group of recommendations as “blenders.”

  6. You can pick “don’t show me this” or “don’t recommend me this channel” from the options button beside suggested videos. Saved me from a dreadful collection of choices about topics I don’t care about.

  7. This is why I now have to watch a lot of videos in private mode so that my recommendations don’t get messed up. After watching a 30-second Simpsons film, it immediately just recommends Simpsons and other cartoons to me.
    Do you want to see a one-minute video tutorial on baking? Okay, now you’ve got a lot of baking tips.
    It’s completely fucked up.
