TiVoMusic Metadata required rapid business turnaround. As SVP, I led TiVo Music Metadata product and team through their transformation.

Content Curation and Filtration: Signal vs. Noise

Over 60,000 new tracks are being released each and every day. With so much content available, it can be easy to get lost in the woods. Where are we supposed to begin when trying to find music that suits our wants and needs? Further yet, how are we supposed to filter through the millions upon millions of songs that are out there? Is it possible to make sure what's being played in school, in the gym, in stores, or in the car is appropriate while still being engaging?
