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

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. via Pocket

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.

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.

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

Spotify crawls the web constantly looking for blog posts and other written texts about music, and figures out what people are saying about specific artists and songs — what adjectives and language is frequently used about those songs, and which other artists and songs are also discussed alongside them.
The most-used terms bucket up into what Spotify calls “cultural vectors” or “top terms.” Each artist and song has thousands of daily-changing top terms. Each term has a weight associated, which reveals how important the description is (roughly, the probability that someone will describe music as that term.)
