Human vs. Machine: The Music Curation Formula

Recreating human recommendations in the digital sphere at scale is a problem we're actively solving across verticals but no one quite has the perfect formula. The vertical where this issue is especially ubiquitous is music. Where we currently stand is solving the integration of human data with machine data and algorithms to generate personalized recommendations that mirrors the nuances of human curation. This formula is the holy grail.
