Echo Nest Partners With Deezer, Adds Taste Profiles
Music intelligence platform The Echo Nest has added Deezer to the growing list of partners using it's Rosetta Stone repository of dynamic music
data on 30 million songs.The addition of Deezer, the top music service in much of the
world, marks a major milestone for Rosetta Stone as the global translator for
music's "big data."
The Echo Nest's Rosetta Stone is a data translator for music
services that allows developers to summon elements from a variety of
sources to include in their apps. The world's social networks, concert
databases, lyrics sites, and myriad other musical resources each structure
their data about artists and their music in different ways. Rosetta Stone
connects these dots, so that Deezer, Twitter, Facebook, LyricFind, EMI,
Musixmatch, 7Digital, Spotify, Rdio, Songkick, JamBase, SongMeaning, the Free
Music Archive, MusicBrainz and other services can speak the same language on a
data level, with powerful implications.
The Echo Nest also announced the launch of Taste
Profile Attributes, which allows services to analyze each user's musical
identities from a variety of angles in order to tailor their offerings
automatically to each individual and increase engagement.
