Spotify’s Discover Weekly: How machine learning finds your new music

Spotify’s Discover Weekly: How machine learning finds your new music | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
This Monday — just like every Monday— over 100 million Spotify users found a fresh new playlist waiting for them. It’s a custom mixtape of 30 songs they’ve never listened to before but will probably…

Suzi Astrauskas's curator insight, October 18, 12:13 PM

I found it really interesting the process they go through to choose the music in discover weekly for some people making them feel seen in the world. They choose the discover weekly for people so well that people are like "yes, this is exactly what I need." Its new every week so each week its like a whole realm of your daily listening. Based on the title of the website I thing that this source is kind of reliable. They talk about different technology from the tech in cars to tech in music. But this isn't really a music article website. It's just for blogging about the new and old technology. It can be somewhat beneficial for audio industry professionals.

Emily Coppa's curator insight, October 18, 12:29 PM

As a frequent Spotify listener, I can say this article is very interesting. It discusses how Spotify generates everyones "Discover Weekly" playlist, which is 30 songs that they've never listened to but will probably love based off of the other artists and genres they are accustomed too. This article is on a website called "hackernoon.com," so I'm not sure how reliable the information from this website is going to be. This source is unlikely to benefit audio industry professionals, considering the article is about an app that only streams music. 

Nicole Harris's curator insight, October 18, 10:51 PM

I think Spotify's discover weekly is.a great addition to the app. I am a Spotify user and I feel as though that apps know my musical taste more than I do. I don't think this a reliable source due to the fact the name of the website is hacker noon.com. I don't think this would inform any audio production professionals.

Google’s Next Big Goal for the Home: Make Sound Smart

Google’s Next Big Goal for the Home: Make Sound Smart | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

"When Google introduced its $399 Google Home Max speaker at its press event in San Francisco on Wednesday, the company didn’t just reveal a bigger, better-sounding speaker. The device is also a first step to use Google’s vast computing resources to make sound itself smart."

Kami Schaefer's curator insight, October 18, 7:28 PM

Google's next product called the Google Home Max speaker is just making its appearance in the world. Personally owning a google product, the google pixel phone, I absolutely love it compared to any android, or apple product I've owned. This speaker seems like it would be worth the $399. 

 

This source seems reliable for the fact the site seems legit, all numbers and words are assorted correctly and straight forward. This website is definitely promoting all google products but the speaker in particular. 

 

I feel this source can be somewhat useful to people in the audio industry for the simple fact that they're selling and audio based product. Music related items typically spark the interest of people within the music industry.

How music supervisors create iconic TV moments

Emily Coppa's curator insight, October 18, 12:55 PM

I found this article interesting because it talks about the job of a music supervisor. Basically what they do is source the songs that make up the soundtrack of TV shows and movies. As of this year, the Emmys are now recognizing these people who work as music supervisors and giving them an award, which I think is well deserved. I believe this source is from a reliable outlet, I also don't think this will serve any purpose to audio industry professionals. 

Nicole Harris's curator insight, October 18, 10:44 PM

 

 

After reading this article I was able to understand more about the role of a music supervisor, Its unfortunate that the Emmy's took this long to recognize the hard work and talent it takes to be a music supervisor. I believe that this a very liable source, furthermore I do not think audio industry professionals will benefit from reading this article .

I love the hustle and grind all these guys have especially Cardi B, but most of the rappers these days don't really talk about nothing but guns and drugs and etc.  I get it, it's entertainment but music is something that you can go into and get away from the world and talk your heart.

Dante Mackell's curator insight, October 18, 6:46 PM

Spotify in my opinion is a great and reliable source for the audio industry because Spotify takes the new digital music streaming to a new level. Spotify simply streams and promote new music to the public and with simple playlists gets many new voices heard.

Nicole Harris's curator insight, October 18, 11:14 PM

Reading this article I got an  inside scoop on how this is happening  and I totally agree, but I feel like nowadays music is not its best I feel like people will just listen to anything now I enjoy all kinds of music but a lot of good music is not really around while other genres are failingI believe this a really reliable source but I do not think audio industry professionals will gain any knowledge from reading this.

Joshua Ming's curator insight, September 16, 2:35 PM

Streaming music is becoming a big thing today and social media like Facebook wants to be first in profiting from it. Bloomberg.com is a credible source for information. Its reliable because it talks specifically about why Facebook wants to own music rights from recording labels. This is key information for anyone who wants to start a record label and are worried about how their going to sell their music.

Christopher Jenkins's curator insight, September 17, 6:47 PM

Simply Outrageous. Facebook already has billions of dollars, First they copy Snapchat, Then they made it to where you can send money to each other like Venmo or Cashapp, and now they want to become Soundcloud or Itunes all in one? I know its business, but that is just simply greedy. I believe one day Facebook will take it too far and will completely Pummel to the ground. They are already stalking people, hacking in to their messages invading peoples privacy. 

 

 

Facebook Inc. is offering major record labels and music publishers hundreds of millions of dollars so the users of its social network can legally include songs in videos they upload, according to people familiar with the matter.

 

The posting and viewing of video on Facebook has exploded in recent years, and many of the videos feature music to which Facebook doesn’t have the rights. Under current law, rights holders must ask Facebook to take down videos with infringing material.

Suzi Astrauskas's curator insight, October 18, 1:22 PM

I found this very interesting that the music industry does in fact use Instagram to help artists gain more followers and lets fans into their daily lives. The Instagram team thinks of new ways to make things better for an artist and they also come up with creative ideas for some of them. This platform isn't really a music platform in fact they use it for all different types of things. This is not necessarily used for the music industry so therefore it really isn't used for people in the industry. 

Dante Mackell's curator insight, October 18, 6:34 PM

Instagram is a powerful application that helps promote established celebrities such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga. This is a very reliable source for the audio industry since millions of consumers are using using Instagram daily and are constantly tuning in on their favorite celebrities. For the Record labels in the industry this means much needed exposure for their artists.

 

Pros: The upside to the app is that Celebrities off all varieties can reach out to the world and express themselves creatively.

 

Cons: It's difficult for up and coming artists to get their voices heard on Instagram without an already established fanbase.

Nicole Harris's curator insight, October 18, 11:11 PM

I found this article eye opening , I never realized how much  Instagram has an impact on the music industry. Its making it easier for them allow fans to see a personal look on the celebrities lives. Their numbers began to grow and so do their pockets. I believe this a really reliable source but I do not think audio industry professionals will gain any knowledge from reading this.

Rasheed Mccord's curator insight, October 11, 7:41 PM

In my opinion I think Taylor Swift should continue to try to trademark her lyrics. She gets benefits when it works out in her favor so why not! She’s able to sell products and make her fans happy with things their favorite artist said on items they can purchase. Although everything’s can’t be trademarked, the things that can should. My source of information is reliable as well as a major informational source in the music industry. 

Jasmine Tabb's curator insight, October 13, 11:47 PM
