Netflix touts $900k AI jobs amid Hollywood strikes
Netflix has triggered an angry response from striking Hollywood actors and writers after posting a job advert for an artificial intelligence expert. The new position would join its Machine Learning Platform team, which drives the Netflix algorithm helping viewers pick new programmes to watch. The job listing, which was first reported by The Intercept on Tuesday, is one of several listed on the Netflix job page that calls for applicants with experience in machine learning and AI. It is unclear from the expansive job advert whether the the role will include advising on content - the TV programmes and films that Netflix chooses to invest in. Netflix declined to comment about the job listings, but has previously said AI will not replace the creative process. Earlier this week, Netflix announced the launch of a new app - My Netflix - which the company calls "a one-stop shop tailored to you with easy shortcuts to help you choose what you want to watch".
