An algorithm that optimizes for avoiding ennui

The Stack Overflow Podcast

We chat with Guillaume Clement, Chief Operating Officer of the video platform Dailymotion, about his journey from Program Director to VP of Engineering to CTO and finally COO. Clement also reveals some hard truths about the recommendation engines that guide our consumption of digital content and Dailymotion's plans to build a system optimized for users' health, not their watch time.

You can learn more about Clement's career on his LinkedIn and on Twitter (assuming you speak French).
