Music Recommendation and Discovery Revisited

I’m off to Chicago to attend the 5th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems.  I’m giving a talk with Òscar Celma called Music Recommendation and Discovery Revisited.  It is a reprise of the talk we gave 4 years ago at ISMIR 2007 in Austria.  Quite a bit has happened in the music discovery space since then so there’s quite  a bit of new material.  Here’s one of my favorite new slides.  10 points if you can figure out what this slide is all about.

It should be a fun talk, and it is always great working with Oscar.  We’ll post the slides  on Monday.
