Spotify Buys AI Start-Up Niland To Improve Recommendations

Apple Music Spotify Buys AI Start-Up Niland To Improve Recommendations
Montez Delgado | 20 May, 2017, 06:10

The deal will see Niland's team join Spotify's R&D unit in NY, where it will "help Spotify continue innovating and improving our recommendation and personalisation technologies resulting in more music discovery which benefits both fans and artists". In 2014 a Spotify intern named Sander Dieleman published research on content-based music recommendation, but Dieleman has since joined Alphabet's DeepMind AI research group.

"Their innovative approach to AI and machine learning based recommendation systems is a flawless fit for the Spotify team", Spotify said.

Niland, on the other hand, works by pulling meaningful information from raw music content and then forming those connections with other artists. They also noted that it succeeded in bringing the most innovative products to the music streaming market.

Even as he erupted anew, fellow Republicans expressed hopes the move would restore some calm to a capital plunged into chaos. Now Mueller will have almost unfettered access to witnesses and information, and the ability to bring criminal charges.

Niland's technology could help boost the track recommendation features at the center of Spotify's plans to stand out from Apple Music and other rivaling streaming services. Discover Weekly turned out to be very popular: It garnered more than 40 million users in under a year.

Streaming music powerhouse Spotify has announced yet another acquisition this morning, this time in the machine-learning field.

The popular music streaming service described Niland's "innovative approach to AI and machine learning based recommendation systems" as a ideal fit as it looks for new ways to connect users with new and relevant music.

Asimismo, en la salida a Aguililla , a la altura de la localidad de Los Hornos, también hay quema de vehículos para bloquear la carretera.

One such area is artificial intelligence (AI), in order to make recommendations much more accurate, and Spotify hopes its latest acquisition will give it this power.

Spotify reached 50 million paying users in March, and it has more than 100 million listeners overall, considering those who use the free version.
