Recommendation Systems Retrospective

Be sure to try out Pandora. It’s essentially a music referral service, fun and easy to use, and pretty good at finding new music you like.

The Creative Generalist mentioned this service on the same day as Greg Hughes - dot - net discussed it.

What I find strange is that Pandora uses a manual process (described here) to extract the “genome” from music.

Firefly from MIT was one of the earliest recommendation systems.
