As you may have noticed, my posting has been super light (even for me) for the last few months. Sorry about that. Anyway, the reader may be interested in the presentation I gave at the IEEE/ACM Joint Conference on Digital Libraries, Workshop On Integrating Digital Library Content with Computational Tools and Services this morning (about 4 hours ago actually). These slides really require the presentation audio to make sense and if it was recorded (unsure if it was...) I'll edit the slide share to have the audio track as well. Regardless, here's the slidebook. Have fun.
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.
