Knowledge-based identification of music suited for places of interest
MetadataShow full item record
Place is a notion closely linked with the wealth of human experience, and invested by values, attitudes, and cultural influences. In particular, many places are strongly related to music, which contributes to shaping the perception and meaning of a place. In this paper we propose a computational approach to identify musicians and music suited for a place of interest (POI)––which is based on a knowledge-based framework built upon the DBpedia ontology––and a graph-based algorithm that scores musicians with respect to their semantic relatedness with a POI and suggests the top scoring ones. Through empirical experiments we show that users appreciate and judge the musician recommendations generated by the proposed approach as valuable, and perceive compositions of the suggested musicians as suited for the POIs.
