Your sword

An algorithm in a nutshell is a set of instructions designed to perform a specific task. This can be a simple process, such as multiplying two numbers, or a complex operation, such as serving the most relevant, personalized recommendations to you on YouTube!
To do this, algorithms analyze users’ activity history and find hundreds of videos that could be relevant to them. Then, they rank these videos based on:

Your shield

  • likes, shares, comments and watch time
  • how well each video has engaged and satisfied similar users;
  • how often each viewer watches videos from each channel or other videos surrounding the same topic, and;
  • how many times YouTube has already shown each video to users.

Your healing potion

Misinformation is false or inaccurate information that is usually spread without the intention to harm. This does not mean it can't harm anyone, it solely means it was not it's intended purpose.

Your key

Data literacy is your ability to interact with data. This ranges from being able to read it to working with data. It allows us to make the right decisions when working with algorithms!
