Context matters: An example of country context in music recommender systems


Algorithmic curation has been adopted by online music platforms to assist listeners in navigating the huge catalogs of music recordings. An ideal music recommender system is meant to propose ’the right music, to the right user, at the right moment’.

Besides showcasing country-specific differences in music taste, I will demonstrate performance differences of recommender approaches with and without considering the country context.
