The TV, as a few generations knew it, is passé. In its new avatar, it’s broadcast, OTT, Wikipedia and e-shopping all rolled into one—a screen that knows its only job is to entertain you. Scrolling through channels is down and out; Netflix-inspired menus are in, trailers popping out as you pass by.

Making all this possible is a relentless engine mining data, picking up patterns and trends.
