Music recommendation systems have become a valuable aid for managing large music collections and discovering new music. Our content-based recommendation system employs signal-based features and semantic music attributes generated using machine-based learning algorithms. In addition to playlist generation and music recommendation, we are exploring new usability concepts made possible by the analysis results. Functionality such as the mufin vision sound universe enables the user to discover his own music collection or even unknown catalogues in a new, more intuitive way.
