Music Perception and Appraisal: Cochlear Implant Users and Simulated Cochlear Implant Listening

Rose Wright, Rosalie M. Uchanski
2012 Journal of american academy of audiology  
Only one study has attempted to predict CI users' enjoyment and perception of music from the users' demographic variables and other perceptual skills (Gfeller et al., 2008) .  ...  For roughly half of the music perception tests, there are no statistically significant differences between the performance of the CI users and of the CIsim listeners.  ...  category when the CI users' listening-habits responses are from their pre-HL period.  ...

PIRACY REVISITED: EXPLORING MUSIC USERS IN THE AGE OF TECHNOLOGY DEPENDENCY

Manuel Cuadrado-García, María José Miquel-Romero, Juan D. Montoro-Pons
2019 Scientific Annals of Economics and Business  
First, objective variables such as demographics, music consumption habits, music genres and technology. Second, subjective variables such as motives and attitudes towards piracy.  ...  To this end we analyse the role of the variables defining the different segments of music users. In doing so, we have considered two main traits influencing the use of music.  ...  Demographic variables such as gender and age plus the use of mobile devices to listen to music are heavily associated to music downloading.  ...

Predicting user demographics from music listening information

Thomas Krismayer, Markus Schedl, Peter Knees, Rick Rabiser
2018 Multimedia tools and applications  
We investigate to which extent the music listening habits of users of the social music platform Last.fm can be used to predict their age, gender, and nationality.  ...  We conclude that personal information can be derived from music listening information, which indeed can help better tailoring recommendations, as we illustrate with the use case of a music recommender  ...  In contrast to these two existing works [21, 38] , our main contributions are: (i) we present a novel approach for the prediction of user traits from music listening habits that combines multiple sources  ...

Walk the Talk [chapter]

Denis Parra, Xavier Amatriain
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Most of the approaches for understanding user preferences or taste are based on having explicit feedback from users.  ...  However, in many real-life situations we need to rely on implicit feedback such as the amount of times a user has bought an item or listened to a song.  ...  Using the results of our analysis, we create a predictive model in which we can predict a user rating, given information of how the user interacted with an item.  ...

Recommending Podcasts for Cold-Start Users Based on Music Listening and Taste

Zahra Nazari, Christophe Charbuillet, Johan Pages, Martin Laurent, Denis Charrier, Briana Vecchione, Ben Carterette
2020 Proceedings of the 43rd International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval  
Recommender systems are increasingly used to predict and serve content that aligns with user taste, yet the task of matching new users with relevant content remains a challenge.  ...  Using music consumption behavior, we examine two main techniques in inferring Spotify users preferences over more than 200k podcasts.  ...  user's listening habits.  ...

Temporal Stability of Music Perception and Appraisal Scores of Adult Cochlear Implant Recipients

Kate Gfeller, Dingfeng Jiang, Jacob J. Oleson, Virginia Driscoll, John F. Knutson
2010 Journal of american academy of audiology  
After controlling for the baseline value, hearing aid use, months of use, music listening habits after implantation, and formal musical training in elementary school were significant predictors of FMR  ...  In contrast, data taken from single testing protocols of music perception and appraisal indicate that CIs are less than ideal in transmitting important structural features of music, such as pitch, melody  ...  Predictors related to musical training and experience included: music listening habits prior to implantation (MBQpre), music listening habits after implantation (MBQpost) (Gfeller et al, 2000b) , amount  ...

Self-reported music perception is related to quality of life and self-reported hearing abilities in cochlear implant users

Christina Fuller, Rolien Free, Bert Maat, Deniz Başkent
2021 Cochlear Implants International  
A decline in music listening habits and a low rating of the quality of music after implantation are reported in DMBQ.  ...  Participants filled three questionnaires: (1) the Dutch Musical Background Questionnaire (DMBQ), which measures the music listening habits, the quality of the sound of music and the self-assessed perception  ...  Deniz Bas ¸kent is professor of speech perception in hearing impaired, and users of hearing aids and cochlear implant users at the University Medical Center Groningen, the Netherlands.  ...

Investigating country-specific music preferences and music recommendation algorithms with the LFM-1b dataset

Markus Schedl
2017 International Journal of Multimedia Information Retrieval  
It contains more than one billion music listening events created by more than 120,000 users of Last.fm.  ...  Basic demographic information and a selection of more elaborate listener-specific descriptors are included as well, for anonymized users.  ...  This strongly supports research in music recommendation, as evidenced by many publications that exploit Last.fm data.  ...

Elisabeth Lex, Dominik Kowald, Markus Schedl
2020 Transactions of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval  
We adopt BLL u to model the listening habits and to predict the music genre preferences of three user groups: listeners of (i) niche, low-mainstream music, (ii) mainstream music, and (iii) medium-mainstream  ...  In this paper, we address the problem of modeling and predicting the music genre preferences of users.  ...  In this paper, we introduce a novel user modeling and genre prediction approach for users with different music consumption patterns and listening habits.  ...

An Improved Rating Mapping Algorithm for Music Recommender System

Xin Zhao, Xiao-meng Mao, Lian-hui Liu, Jun Zheng, Yan Liu
2017 DEStech Transactions on Engineering and Technology Research  
When the artist play count lies across two intervals, the higher rating is not appropriate when the majority of artist play count lies in the lower interval of the distribution.  ...  To solve this problem, we use the median of the artist play count instead as the statistical object to optimize existing algorithm.  ...  1 and 5 based on the user's listening habit.  ...

Social Complex Contagion in Music Listenership: A Natural Experiment with 1.3 Million Participants [article]

John Ternovski, Taha Yasseri
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We generate a novel dataset from Last.fm, a music tracking website, to analyse the listenership history of 1.3 million users over a two-month time horizon.  ...  Moreover, we show that this effect is contagious and can spread to users who did not attend the event. However, the extent of contagion depends on the type of artist.  ...  A user does not have to listen to the music directly from the Last.fm website for it to be recorded (or "scrobbled") in the user's track history-a user needs only to install the Audioscrobbler plugin on  ...
