    Default Youtube's weird Algorithm and Machine Learning

    I find it all a bit sinister. This happened the other day 2CZ9Wr.gif Not reflective of my listening habits... was I somehow identified as white and then given these suggestions, was it purely algorithmic?

You watch one video and instantly your front page is filled with JP videos and videos about his videos.
