Artists and Not Algorithms Should Curate Our Music Discoveries

Artists and Not Algorithms Should Curate Our Music Discoveries | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Maurice Boucher takes a stand for human curators in the arts, by placing string emphasis on the fact that purely alorithmic solutions cannot really discern people expressed needs and desires from unexpressed ones.


His central point is this: "At the heart of the online music curation role is the possible solution to the expressed need versus unexpressed desire problem that permeates the Internet and prevents us from developing internet culture beyond purely commercial interests."


He writes: "...I know of no algorithm that can work out the difference between what people ask for and what they actually desire.


That is the philosophical question that really is the core software requirement of a music recommendation engine, and music curation is an ideal testbed case to see if we can build a layer on the internet to act as verification of the search process.


...communicating socially and informally (with strangers) and sharing music is not enough to build a bridge between what people ask for and what they desire.


People have to have a sense that some agency is acting at least semi-exclusively for them and has some insight into who they are."


"At the heart of the online music curation role is the possible solution to the expressed need verses unexpressed desire problem that permeates the Internet and prevents us from developing internet culture beyond purely commercial interests."


"The artists have to be included in the equations that run the algorithms of curation and filtering for the internet to have a future beyond being just another compendium of useless facts and trivia."



Rightful. 8/10

The Filter Bubble: Algorithm vs. Curator & the Value of Serendipity

The Filter Bubble: Algorithm vs. Curator & the Value of Serendipity | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

(remember last year, when the "filter bubble" exploded - is it still "real" - or are we beyond the bubbles meanwhile with all our curation-tools, H.I. :-)

"How the web gives us what we want to see, and that's not necessarily a good thing."

...

Please read the wonderful Post of by Maria Popova (http://bit.ly/MariaPopova) again & think about it!

Most of us are aware that our web experience is somewhat customized by our browsing history, social graph and other factors. But this sort of information-tailoring takes place on a much more sophisticated, deeper and far-reaching level than we dare suspect. (Did you know that Google takes into account 57 individual data points before serving you the results you searched for?) That’s exactly what Eli Pariser (http://elipariser.com/), founder of public policy advocacy group MoveOn.org, explores in his fascinating and, depending on where you fall on the privacy spectrum, potentially unsettling new book, The Filter Bubble — a compelling deep-dive into the invisible algorithmic editing on the web, a world where we’re being shown more of what algorithms think we want to see and less of what we should see.

I met Eli in March at TED, where he introduced the concepts from the book in one of this year’s best TED talks. Today, I sit down with him to chat about what exactly “the filter bubble” is, how much we should worry about Google, and what our responsibility is as content consumers and curators — exclusive Q&A follows his excellent TED talk:

Heiko Idensen's insight:

update ... out of a Diskussion in the #mmc13 mooc:
...
...I think,  curation without algorithms is not possible ... therefore #curation is the weapon of the online-communyty against the power of the search engines, isn't it?
...
see also the quotations out of the book on readmill:
