The purpose of this project is to understand how current systems used to recommend music affect artists and to propose alternative solutions that could benefit the artists. The goal is to identify potential problems that affect artists, and to draw on the artists’ perspective about how future recommender systems could work.

This thematic research focus has its origin in the collaboration with Andrés Ferraro starting in 2019. Of course, we are joining forces with many excellent researchers to move forward.
