Last Friday was my last day at Pandora. I made a song to say goodbye:
My take on the Catalan elections of last Sunday, mostly for my non-Catalan friends.
Well, what the fuck happened?! Extreme police brutality, climate change yielding apocalyptic skies, hottest year on record, US strikes in Iraq killing the second-most important leader in Iran, a US president denying the results of the US general election, and… yeah, a global pandemic.
Very happy to announce that, after almost a period of 3 years (!
Eighth time attending ISMIR and first time attending virtually –some may say we were in Montvirtual instead of Montréal (sorry, not sorry).
For my paper of this year’s ISMIR I’ve had the real pleasure to join forces with a titanic set of humans from Pandora, MTG-UPF, and Netflix to bring up this work to life: Mood Classification Using Listening Data.
It was long overdue, but I have finally been to RecSys for the first time.
It only took 10 years and a pandemic to finally upgrade my personal website.
