Risk "Attention" or "Adventure": A Qualitative Study of Novelty and Familiarity in Music Listening

Vikas Kumar, Sabirat Rubya, Joseph A. Konstan, Loren Terveen
2018 ACM Conference on Recommender Systems  
We show that a combination of factors, both explicit and implicit, such as boredom, need of attention, risk of a bad selection; that play in uential role in users' novel and familiar music selections.  ...  While recommendations systems have shown great improvements in generally predicting relevant items, they still face challenges in achieving the delicate balance between novel and familiar options.  ...  These factors thus play critical role in users' selection of music and the balance they seek in the amount of novelty or familiarity in their music.  ...

Evaluating Music Recommendations with Binary Feedback for Multiple Stakeholders [article]

Sasha Stoikov, Hongyi Wen
2021 arXiv   pre-print
High quality user feedback data is essential to training and evaluating a successful music recommendation system, particularly one that has to balance the needs of multiple stakeholders.  ...  Using the Piki Music dataset of 500k ratings collected over a two-year time period, we evaluate the performance of classic recommendation algorithms on three important stakeholders: consumers, well-known  ...  In the music domain, lesser-known artist have expressed many concerns, which include reaching an audience, transparency in recommendations, localizing discovery, gender balance and popularity bias, according  ...

"Play music": User motivations and expectations for non-specific voice queries

Jennifer Thom, Angela Nazarian, Ruth Brillman, Henriette Cramer, Sarah Mennicken
2020 Zenodo  
We conclude with implications for how these themes can inform the interaction design of voice search systems in handling non-specific music requests in voice search systems.  ...  The growing market of voice-enabled devices introduces new types of music search requests that can be more ambiguous than in typed search interfaces as voice assistants can potentially support conversational  ...  This was particularly marked with participants who expressed high degrees of confidence in the service's recommendation algorithms.  ...

TagFlip

Mohsen Kamalzadeh, Christoph Kralj, Torsten Möller, Michael Sedlmair
2016 Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces - IUI '16  
We report on the design and evaluation of TagFlip, a novel interface for active music discovery based on social tags of music.  ...  Contrary to conventional recommenders, which only allow the specification of seed attributes and the subsequent like/dislike of songs, we put the users in the centre of the recommendation process.  ...  The role of the user is, of course, not neglected in algorithmic recommender systems.  ...

A Novelty Search and Power-Law-Based Genetic Algorithm for Exploring Harmonic Spaces in J.S. Bach Chorales [chapter]

Bill Manaris, David Johnson, Yiorgos Vassilandonakis
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We explore how novelty search can aid in the discovery of new harmonic progressions through this space as represented by a Markov model capturing probabilities of transitions between harmonies.  ...  It supports visual exploration and navigation of harmonic transition probabilities through interactive gesture control. These probabilities are computed from musical corpora (in MIDI format).  ...  This work has been supported in part by NSF (grants IIS-0736480, IIS-0849499 and IIS-1049554) and a donation from the Classical Music Archives.  ...
