Cornell Chronicle: ‘Dislike’ button would improve Spotify’s recommendations
Cornell Chronicle: ‘Dislike’ button would improve Spotify’s recommendations. “Spotify’s whole business model relies on keeping you listening and being able to predict what songs you’ll want to hear next. But Cornell researchers recently asked the question: Why do they still not let you vote down a song? The research team recently developed a recommendation algorithm that shows just how much more effective Spotify would be if it could, in the style of platforms like Pandora, incorporate both likes and dislikes.” I wish they would let you block songs. Surely I’m not the only one who has bad memory songs they never want to hear again?
