Jaime Kaufman's Projects

  • Master's Thesis - "A Hybrid Approach to Music Recommendation: Exploiting Collaborative Music Tags and Acoustic Features"

    • August 2013 to Present
    Team Members: Jaime Kaufman

    * Currently in experiment phase; please navigate to http://orion.ccec.unf.edu/recommendation_system ! *

    A hybrid approach to music recommendation is proposed by utilizing the strengths of both collaborative filtering and content-based filtering. Taking advantage of both techniques will effectively tackle the issue of Cold Start prevalent in systems using primarily collaborative filtering. In addition, a hybrid system will enable users to achieve the highest level of satisfaction (accuracy of recommendations) while maintaining a quick response time and allowing for more diverse discoveries.
