I'm going to be DJing at this event at the Dana Centre in London tomorrow. The playlist for my DJ set has been automatically generated using both social network information (from Myspace) and acoustic similarity measures. If you're intrigued, come to the event. if you can't make the event, the algorithm will be presented in an ISMIR paper this year, so you'll be able to see a bit of it there (if you're the ISMIR attending type. You know who you are...)
I recently started as a Data Analysis Engineer with Musicmetric after completing a PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London. My research interests are in large (music) collection navigation, (music) recommenders, playlist construction and social music in general. I am an administrator of the MyPySpace open source project to create translation layers and interesting navigation tools to social networks in general and myspace in particular. I also DJ, mostly Drum and Bass, a bit of breaks and other things. The DJing is primarily in two places: The DJ Skool and Wired Radio Goldsmiths' Student run radio statio. I'm also the station's Audio Engineer.
