Next Saturday I'll be travelling to Montreal during the Pop Montreal festival.  I'm sitting on a panel entitled  Recommendation Engine: Conceptualizing the Universe. along with Sandy Pearlman (record producer), Doug Eck (University of Montreal, Music+Machine learning expert) and Brian Whitman (The Echo Nest).

The description of the panel is:

How a full bore recommendation engine would reliably lead anyone in the world to all the music in the world they would love if they only knew it existed. With an aggregate of over one billion songs – as opposed to titles now available somewhere on line (according to Cache Logic), implementing recommendation engineering navigation, capable of creating a taste based “trend line” populated by as many songs, version and/or title that one may specify, simply as a function of a few user inputted descriptors, would impose individually generated guided availability upon what would otherwise prove an ungraspable chaos of music overload. How will recommendation engines rise to the challenge? Some of the world’s leading technological gurus, futurists, licensing library reps and recommendation engine leaders discuss one emerging trend in the future of music

Now I don't know what any of that means, but I still think the panel would be a good look at what is going on in the world of music recommendation, so stop on by if you are in the area. More info on the Pop Montreal page

Hallelujah! I am not alone!
