A smart music playlist app that provides a personalized music listening experience based on the users personal preferences
Trackmate is an AI-powered smart music playlist app that addresses the issue of music lovers struggling to discover new songs and artists that match their unique interests and personality. Many popular music streaming apps offer generic and unengaging playlists, but Trackmate continually learns from users' listening habits and preferences to provide a truly personalized music experience.
Popular music streaming apps like Apple Music and Spotify provide playlist recommendations based on algorithms and human curation that analyze a user's listening history, preferences, and interactions with the app. A study published in the Journal of Information Science in 2018 analyzed the accuracy of music recommendation algorithms used by popular streaming services like Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music. The study found that while the algorithms were generally effective at recommending popular songs and artists, they were less successful at recommending more obscure or niche music that may be more relevant to individual user preferences.
Another study published in the Journal of Consumer Research in 2019 examined the user experience of music streaming services, including issues related to playlist recommendations. The study found that users often felt overwhelmed by the number of options available on these services and struggled to find music that aligned with their individual tastes and preferences. Users also reported frustration with the limited options for customizing playlists and the lack of diversity in the recommendations provided by the algorithms. As a result, users face the challenge of discovering new songs and artists that match their unique interests and personality. This highlights the need for a personalized music listening experience that can continuously add new songs based on factors like a user's age, mood, and personal tastes. This has led to the idea of creating a smart music playlist app that can address these pain points and provide users with a more engaging, diversified and personalized experience.
Goals include increasing listener satisfaction with regard to finding a recommended playlist and understanding what users look for in a quality playlist. The hope is to provide an alternative to the generic and unengaging playlists that are generated by popular music streaming apps by leveraging user preferences and advanced AI technology.
Music enthusiasts struggle to discover new songs and artists that align with their unique interests and preferences. While popular streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify use algorithms to suggest recommendations, studies indicate that these suggestions are often too generic and fail to captivate users. Additionally, the recommendations lack diversity, making it challenging to discover artists and songs from different parts of the world. As a result, users are forced to manually search for new music, which is time-consuming and can lead to missed opportunities.
The proposed solution is to create a smart music playlist app powered by AI that can search for songs based on factors like specific tempo, mood, popularity, and personal tastes. The app continuously adds new songs that users will love based on their unique listening habits and attributes. In addition, users have access to Trackmate analytics that analyze each users unique listening habits to help the algorithm improve. This app aims to provide an alternative to the generic and unengaging playlists generated by popular music streaming apps, by leveraging user preferences and advanced AI technology to create personalized music listening experiences that match each user's unique interests and personality. The app will use data such as user listening history, liked and disliked songs, and other preferences to make recommendations that are tailored to each individual user.
