So that’s where all its money is going!
zone is awesome
Streaming giant Netflix, which is one of several studios currently fighting with the striking SAG union over, among other things, whether they should one day pay background actors for the right to deepfake an actor’s scene in any future content. be allowed to pay at the rate of Rs. Alas, there’s a perfect place to put all that money that apparently isn’t meant for writers and actors: According to one job posting, it’s looking to pay someone anywhere between $300,000 and $900,000 to tell them How can he make money from AI. Technique.
first caught gizmodoThe posting is specifically looking for a Machine Learning Product Manager, and is ridiculously vague about what exactly this very well-compensated manager might do. Doing. As GIZ Turns out, Netflix employs AI in places like its recommendation algorithms and thumbnails, but based on the details and salary, it sounds less like a background engineering role and more like an overall strategy-slash-brainstorming position.
The listing reads, “With more than 230 million members in more than 190 countries, Netflix is shaping the future of entertainment around the world.” “Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence is powering innovation in all areas of business.”
“The Machine Learning Platform (MLP) provides the foundation for all this innovation. It provides the means for ML/AI practitioners at Netflix to achieve the highest possible impact with their work by making it easy to develop, deploy and improve their machine-learning provides. model,” it continues. “We are creating a new product management role to leverage our machine learning platform.”
machine learning vision
Among the qualifications listed, Netflix asks its AI management applicants to combine several skills to “define, explain and execute its vision.” Indeed, most of the qualifications involve mention of ML Manager’s “vision” for Netflix’s continued use of AI. Which honestly goes to show that Netflix’s approach to AI has generally been to incorporate the technology into every corner of its business.
This whole thing is quite disappointing, even if not surprising, given that Netflix has made it clear over the past few months that it isn’t quite ready to give up on its AI ambitions. Looking at this job listing, Netflix certainly intends to put its money where its mouth is. We can only hope other studios follow suit. So, if brainstorming ways to craft our content economy’s final descent into AI-spun nothingstuff sounds like your deal — well, enjoy the high life, buddy.
