Abstract

See full text

A system and methods for the dynamic generation of playlists to a user are provided. In connection with a system that convergently merges perceptual and digital signal processing analysis of media entities for purposes of classifying the media entities, various means are provided to a user for automatically generating playlists of closely related and/or similarly situated media entities for distribution to participating users. Techniques for providing a dynamic recommendation engine and techniques for rating media entities are also included. In an illustrative implementation, the playlists may be generated and stored allowing for user persistence from experience to experience.
