Pandora announced hundreds of podcasts episodes that include different kinds of genres such as News, True Crime, Sports, Comedy, Music, Business, Technology, Entertainment, Kids, Health and Science.
According to in a blog post of Pandora, the key goal for its podcast launch was to have a solution to the user’s question “What podcast should I listen to?” The company started working last year for its Podcast Genome Project to let users in personalizing their podcasts recommendations that users want. The app includes a new tab which has “Recommended Podcasts For You” selection.
The Podcast Genome Project will offer the right podcast that suite user at the right time. It rates content based on categories that will be seen on the app. The company added “It evaluates content based on a variety of attributes spanning content categories, as well as your signals including thumbs, skips, collects, and plays. Our system learns your preferences using natural language processing, collaborative filtering, and other machine learning approaches. And, similar to the Music Genome Project, the Podcast Genome Project combines these techniques with the expertise of our in-house Curation team to offer personalized recommendations down to the episode level that reflect who you are today and evolve with you tomorrow.”
Users may now apply for the Podcasts through the company’s form for consideration to be published.
