The Echo Nest, which I recently described as a key player in the evolution of the personalized Web, will put its machine-learning system to work surfacing relevant music reviews, blogs, images and social media content for hundreds of thousands of artists.
Yahoo recently overhauled its music site as part of a company-wide design refresh. The new discovery features include location-based music recommendations and updates on artist activity.
The Echo Nest has steadily proven the value of its data-centric approach by teaming up with the biggest players in the music industry. The BBC, Fuse/MSG Network, KCRW and MTV also use the companyâ€™s Dynamic Music Data. Rdio recently turned on new personalized music stations powered by The Echo Nest, and Spotify, eMusic and iHeartRadio work with the startup as well.
