Spotifys Google Assistant-Powered Music Suggestion, Podcast Recommendation Features Now Live

Published

on

Spotify has announced that users who listen to music on a Google Assistant-powered device can now get music recommendations via simple voice command. Additionally, Spotify has also revealed that its podcast recommendation feature is also now live. Spotify will rely on algorithms to analyse the listening habits of users and will then curate a list of recommended podcasts with the name “Your Daily Podcasts”. Lastly, Spotify has also announced its first three original podcasts for India that will go live in the country on December 3.

Starting with the Google Assistant-powered music recommendation feature, Spotify has announced that the virtual assistant can now find and play a song that suits the music taste of users with just a simple voice command. All users who stream music from Spotify on a Google Assistant-powered smart home device like the Google Home just need to utter a command such as “Hey Google, Recommend some music” to play a recommended song selected after assessing their music listening history.

Other activation phrases include “Play recommended music” and “Find recommended music.” If the recommendations are not what the user wants, they can then say “Play something else/ different” or “Try something else/ different.” This feature currently has support for English language only, and can reportedly be used irrespective of geographical location. However, it is only available for Spotify Premium subscribers.

Moving over to the world of podcasts, Spotify has announced that its algorithms can now study the podcast preference of users to curate a podcast playlist for them. The podcast recommendation algorithm will kick off once users have listened to at least four podcasts in the past 90 days. When that happens, users will see a new “Your Daily Podcasts” playlist in the “Your Top Podcasts” shelf on Home or in the “Made For You” hub on browse. This feature is now live for users in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand, UK and the US only for both free and premium tiers.

Additionally, Spotify has announced its first three original podcasts for India in a bid to make inroads in the Indian market. The three Spotify original podcasts for India- “22 Yarns With Gaurav Kapur” hosted by Gaurav Kapur, “Bhaskar Bose” hosted by Mantra Mugdh, and “Love Aaj Kal With Aastha & Ankit” hosted by Aastha & Ankit – will go live on December 3.

The Basics of Business Intelligence [Infographic]

Published

on

Take large amounts of data. Refine it. Analyze it. Then make decisions based off the resulting information.

That, in a nutshell, is business intelligence, or BI. BI is not a single tool, but a variety of resources, from hardware to software, and anything that provides data, including the treasure trove available from your social media channels.

Business intelligence software organizes the data, and users create reports, dashboards, and data visualizations. As a term, BI now includes advanced and augmented analytics, and while traditional BI focuses on what happened in the past and what’s happening in the present, business analytics (BA) identifies current trends in order to predict future trends.

Essentially, business intelligence software takes your company’s data and helps you better understand what happened, why it happened, what will happen, and what you can do about it. And the advantages for business are clear.

New Personal Data Protection Bill Could Create a World’s First for Social Media in India

Published

on

The government’s proposed new privacy bill may require large social media platforms to offer an identity-verification option, a potentially precedent-setting effort to rein in the spread of “fake news”, two government sources told Reuters on Thursday. The requirement would likely raise a host of technical and policy issues for companies including Facebook and its WhatsApp and Instagram units, Twitter, and Chinese app TikTok, all of which have millions of users in India.

Companies would have to offer a mechanism for users to prove their identities and display that verification publicly, akin to the blue check-mark that Twitter has used to confirm the authenticity of some high-profile accounts, including those belonging to celebrities and politicians. Verification would be optional for users, the sources said.

The Personal Data Protection bill, whose first draft was made public last year, is keenly awaited by top technology companies and industry stakeholders as it could alter the way all major internet companies process, store and transfer Indian consumers’ data.

The identity verification requirement, introduced in the latest draft of the bill, would be one of the most ambitious efforts globally to battle disinformation and fake news, which is often spread by pseudonymous or fake accounts.

“The idea was to reduce the spread of fake news and online trolling,” said one of the sources, a IT ministry official.

The privacy bill was cleared by cabinet on Wednesday and will be presented to parliament soon, officials said. But passage is not imminent, one of the sources said, as the legislation will likely be referred to a parliamentary expert committee or a panel for further review.

Since 2017, fake news and rumour-mongering on social media in India has led to more than 30 deaths, data portal IndiaSpend said last year. The companies have taken some measures to combat the problem – including a move by WhatsApp to limit group-forwarding of messages.

But Facebook and other companies have resisted the idea that they should verify the identity of their users, partly on the grounds that people in many countries would struggle to provide sufficient documentation

The voluntary verification scheme would give users more confidence in the validity of information on the verified accounts, though it would not eliminate fake accounts.
