For this week, I have been mainly working on:
– Make a few changes on the coding environment for my project from last week for better efficiency.
– Follow Xunfei’s advice to consider some other music datasets. I eventually decided to use the Echo Nest Taste Profile Subset. This dataset is larger and more widely used than the LFM-1b dataset which I had been using.
– Design an efficient method to convert the original data into matrix form in order to use collaborative filtering.
