Changing Music One Listener at a Time: Brian Whitman at TEDxSomerville

Brian teaches computers to listen to music. He was a frustrated electronic musician before packing it in for grad school at Columbia and the MIT Media Lab in natural language processing and machine learning to figure out what people talk about when they talk about music. Since then, he's co-founded Somerville's The Echo Nest, which powers discovery and the future of music for people like Spotify, Twitter, MTV, Clear Channel, major labels, and thousands of independent developers.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
