Spotify's Discover Weekly: How machine learning finds your new music

#artificialintelligence 

It's called Discover Weekly, and it's pretty much magic. I'm a huge fan of Spotify, and particularly Discover Weekly. As it turns out, I'm not alone in my obsession with Discover Weekly--the user base went crazy for it, which has driven Spotify to completely rethink its focus, investing more resources into algorithm-based playlists. Ever since Discover Weekly debuted in 2015, I've been dying to know how it worked (plus I'm a fangirl of the company, so sometimes I like to pretend I work there and research their products.)
