Socially Curated Discovery: How Algorithms Will Tell Us What We Like [Future Of Entertainment]
In the second week of our ten week series with IQ by Intel, we look at the rise of socially-powered recommendation services.
The Future of Entertainment series by iQ by Intel and PSFK Labs is highlighting the latest in entertainment innovation. Over the course of 10 weeks at iq.intel.com, we are showcasing new products, services and technologies, exploring the changing face of how we consume, share and create content, and getting reactions from Intel experts.
We explore a new set of curation tools that are helping us get outside of our content echo chambers by serving up new recommendations that reflect the consumption habits of the people within our social and interest graphs.
Piki is a music discovery app that combines a streaming service with recommendations from the people in your social networks to create an experience that is highly personalized.
Telly is a social video curation service that aims to simplify how users find and share video content online. Think of the service as the ultimate online video channel, playing all the videos your friends were formally watching.
To get an expert perspective on the evolution of these services, the growing sophistication of algorithms and how they’ll influence our consumption habits, we spoke with Ted Willke, a Principal Engineer with Intel and the General Manager of the Graph Analytics Operation in Intel Labs.
Stay tuned to the Future of Entertainment as next week we’ll be looking at a new trend from the theme Inside The Story which explores how content creators are leveraging multiple devices and screens to involve audiences more deeply in the plot.
