surrounded by algorithms, engineered to consume

I read an article earlier today detailing how Netflix uses AI, Data Science and Machine Learning from a product perspective. Personalization of movie recommendations and auto-generation of thumbnails are use cases.

Netflix pretty much keeps every data about you, movie thumbnails are customized based on data e.g ethnicity.

It reminded me that's how YouTube is also. And Twitter. And Facebook. And TikTok. And etc.

We are surrounded by algorithms, being engineered daily to consume.
