Getting More Relevant Advice

Saturday, April 2, 2011 General

A few years ago, we pieced together a recommendation system for this website. You know how this works: you visit a disc page, and a small aside gives you a list of “other releases you might like.”

We have reviewed the relevance of its results and proceeded to a radical rewrite of our suggestions sytem based on the principles laid out in Toby Segaran’s book Programming Collective Intelligence (O’Reilly, 2007).

This new system, based as it is on stronger statistical principles, gives noticeably better advice, and we hope that they will boldly guide you to new, uncharted waters!
