ZDNet: YouTube viewership hits 1 billion hours of video a day

ZDNet: YouTube viewership hits 1 billion hours of video a day. “As the Wall Street Journal first reported, the site reached that milestone in part by powering its recommendations engine with machine learning algorithms. Other factors have contributed to the increase in viewership, including the shift to mobile: A growing number of people have internet access via their mobile devices, and more than 60 percent of YouTube watch time now happens on mobile and tablets.” Just imagine how much more I could be watching if the recommendations engine wasn’t recommending the same videos OVER and OVER and OVER again!
