The researchers at EPFL’s Signal Processing Laboratory propose a software that allows the exploration and rediscovering of your own musical library, called Genezik, which will be presented in the next Montreux Jazz Festival.
Instead of other approximations to recommend music based on tags or user reviews this software uses the music signal to identify those recommendations that may not be as obvious. For instance, although Led Zeppelin is sometimes classified as hard rock some of its songs are more near Bob Marley; Genezik is able to identify this relationships.
It also comprises a social compoment, where different users’ graphs are connected to each other, in order to use this network to recommend songs discovered by others.
Genezik successfully uses DEX as its graph database management system. Stay tuned for more news of this exciting new software by EPFL (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne)!
