The Music Industry is Rapping to Data Science

By Byte on Aug 17, 2020 1:33:13 PM

From the Beatles to Taylor Swift, everyone's music is available digitally now. People used to think technology is killing the music industry, but it's technology which is reviving it. So for musicians who are also interested in programming, data science is one way to get onboard with the idea. Spotify and Pandora know just the right track to play next thanks to data science. Wondering which song did well and why, look no further, the answer is in data science.

 

Pandora was perhaps the frontrunner of combining the two when it started the 'Music Genome Project' way back in 1999 before terms like Big Data even existed. The project considers songs as datasets and analyzes each song using up to 450 distinct musical characteristics or “genes”. A person – a trained music analyst with an actual degree in music – and automated algorithms comb through the song and classify it as Pop/Rock, Hip-Hop/Electronica, Jazz, World Music, and Classical. Decoding the “genes” of the song helps Pandora find the similarities and then successfully predict what a user might like listening to next.

Startup Lesson: Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data

By Emily on Aug 17, 2020 5:55:58 AM

FinTech startup VendorMach provided lessons in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and big data on the Byte campus recently. Topics covered by Chaney Ojinnaka, CEO, and Ivan Kotorov, VP, Enterprise, included:  KYC (Know Your Customer), supply chain, trust scoring and programming languages.  They explained why they chose Python over Ruby for their product.  Python's ability to analyze numbers and frameworks are key (as a Python school we're thrilled:).  VendorMach also discussed FinTech cultural attitudes in London (original headquarters) and New York City  (second office location).  By the end of the event the audience felt much much comfortable with "hot" technology buzzwords including artificial intelligence, machine learning, supply chain and more.
