Search 2.0 + musique
Although they claim to be « 50% more accurate and relevant than any other search engine, including google », I’m not convinced. However, they do have mechanisms in place to determine fairly accurate answers for short questions, compared to Google. For example: Who was Louis-Nicholas Vauquelin? Compare Google‘s answer to Lexxe‘s.
A research project at Sun Labs is exploring new methods of searching music by its acoustic content and context. This project is aimed at helping people find and organize their music based on the properties of the music itself: lyrics, musical theme, melody, tempo, rhythm, and instrumentation.
On January 6, 2000 a group of musicians and music-loving technologists came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever.
Together we set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level. We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or « genes » into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song – everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It’s not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records – it’s about what each individual song sounds like.
Ever since we started the Music Genome Project, our friends would ask:
Can you help me discover more music that I’ll like?
Those questions often evolved into great conversations. Each friend told us their favorite artists and songs, explored the music we suggested, gave us feedback, and we in turn made new suggestions. Everybody started joking that we were now their personal DJs.
We created Pandora so that we can have that same kind of conversation with you.
(essai de simplifier la veille à l’aide du Notebook Google – qui n’est pas fait pour ça mais qui permet, à condition de s’habituer aux contraintes un peu spéciales du copier/coller à partir de lui, de poster de façon plus groupée que par « Blog this » et moins sommaire que par la publication quoitidienne de liens del.icio.us.)
