This week I have been reading some published papers that use the same dataset as the one I use for this project. My purposes for doing this are to know the conclusions other people have made using the dataset and to examine the methods that they used. I found that some research projects used this dataset for investigating the diversity of different countries through listening habits and music recommendation with cultural context. I haven’t looked into the papers about music recommendation in detail but I plan to do that when I have the time. I think this will help a lot because they are using the same dataset that I will be using.
