InDiscover

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Those of you who heard my talk in Winnipeg last week (or viewed the slides online) will recall my discusion of recommender systems. InDiscover is one such site, a service designed to help bring independent music to new listeners by recommending songs based on users' tastes. The site is run using racofi technology, developed by NRC in Fredericton in conjunction with the Sifter Filter project I described in my talk, and so it gives you a pretty good idea of how such a system would work for learning resources. What I also like about this site is its focus on new and independent musicians, showing how such systems will open the marketplace. Still looking for the RSS metadata feeds from the site, but hey, one thing at a time. The site could also use more songs, so if you know of independent artists looking for exposure, forward them this item.
