Spotify’s Discover Weekly: How machine learning finds your new music

With Spotify, you can get by just by listening to music and after a while, it develops a pretty good profile on you. You can also create playlists, 'save' albums, etc. and that can factor in as well. This piece gives some great insight into it: https://t.co/bKWhBjVWWo

This Monday — just like every Monday— over 100 million Spotify users found a fresh new playlist waiting for them. It’s a custom mixtape of 30 songs they’ve never listened to before but will probably love. It’s called Discover Weekly, and it’s pretty much magic.
I’m a huge fan of Spotify, and particularly Discover Weekly. Why? It makes me feel seen. It knows my musical tastes better than any person in my life ever has, and I am consistently delighted by how it satisfies me just right every week, with tracks I myself would never have found or known I would like.

A relatively accessible explanation.

Spotify actually doesn’t use a single revolutionary recommendation model — instead, they mix together some of the best strategies used by other services to create its own uniquely powerful Discovery engine.
To create Discover Weekly, there are three main types of recommendation models that Spotify employs:
Collaborative Filtering models (i.e. the ones that Last.fm originally used), which work by analyzing your behavior and others’ behavior.
Natural Language Processing (NLP) models, which work by analyzing text.
Audio models, which work by analyzing the raw audio tracks themselves.

Discover Weekly on Spotify has consistently found new tracks I enjoy. If you have Spotify and haven't used it yet, a new playlist is waiting for you tomorrow.

m not alone in my obsession with Discover Weekly—the user base went crazy for it, which has driven Spotify to completely rethink its focus, investing more resources into algorithm-based playlists.

Not sure how accurate this is (it's not written by a Spotify employee), but seems pretty well researched -- according to this Discover Weekly is a mix of 3 different algorithms
