Scope and Objectives


In response to the industrial needs of the music industry the FuturePulse project has identified the following six specific technological and innovation objectives:

  •   Objective 1: Deliver a single tool for collecting and accessing music data from a diverse set of sources.
  •   Objective 2: Deliver a set of data-driven services for estimating the current and future popularity of songs, artists and genres.
  •   Objective 3: Deliver a set of services for enhanced audience analysis and management.
  •   Objective 4: Integrate music data collection, mining, and visualization in a scalable Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform.
  •   Objective 5: Perform large-scale pilots on three clearly defined music segments.
  •   Objective 6: Develop and execute a comprehensive dissemination and exploitation plan and pave a clear path to market.

The project will result in a number of high-quality outcomes that will form the basis for the exploitation plan of the project. These are illustrated in figure above and include the following:

  •   A robust and extensible multi-source music data ingestion and real-time indexing framework.
  •   A multi-modal music popularity prediction engine: This will produce short- and long-term predictions for popularity indices about specific artists, albums, songs, styles and genres, given a variety of incoming signals.
  •   An online music community analysis framework and a music recommendation engine.
  •   An integrated scalable cloud-based platform offering the full spectrum of FuturePulse services.
  •   Three market-driven applications serving the needs of record labels, event organizers and music platform.
