NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Several readers asked if I could condense the various parts of my exclusive look at Pandora's (P - Get Report) Music Genome Project (MGP) into one article. Because it makes sense to have a central point of reference, I decided to do just that.
Between these eight videos, there's one hour, 19 minutes and 51 seconds worth of tape where Pandora's VP/Playlists and Chief Scientist Eric Bieschke reveals the method behind the music. After learning, with specific examples, how the MGP powers personalization and music discovery for every listener, it's easy to understand why Pandora continuously fends off competitive threats to remain Internet radio's leader.
While you should watch every video (because they're all really great), if you're pressed for time or deciding which to watch first, start with the ones on Page Three ... the song-by-song look at how Pandora serves personalized radio is particularly fascinating, in a music, tech, data geek kind of way.
Ahead of each set of videos or video, I provide a link to the story they/it appeared in.
