What is YouTube’s “Beau of the Fifth Column”?
Beau is the name given to one of YouTube’s three robots.
Beau helped serve videos for over six billion hours in 2013, and was responsible for uploading 400 million hours worth of video during that time. Beau has expanded its horizons this year by being programmed to not only find and upload film content, but also television shows as well.
It’s so successful that it now reaches over 58% of all 18-24 year olds in the United States every month! Quite a feat for just one robot…
