Future of Entertainment: Introduction to Socially Curated Discovery


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.

Sourcing Your Social Network To Create The Perfect Radio Station


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.

Finding The Best Video Content Using The Power Of The Social Graph


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.

Building A Better Algorithm (With A Little Help From Your Friends)


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.
