Machine learning applied to music search

There are several parts in our search platform that use machine learning to give the best user experience possible. We want a master’s student to look into the best way of doing this. (Team Search Platform)  

Machine learning applied to personalized daily playlist

We’d be thrilled if a sharp master’s student took a stab at how machine learning can be applied on creating personalized daily playlists. You will get to explore our state of the art music recommendations of the songs a user is most likely to play, state a hypothesis, implement it, and and then verify it with real users. (Team Market Opportunities)

Natural Language Understanding applied to music search

We are looking for a master’s student with a major in Natural Language Processing (or similar) up for writing a master’s thesis on how Natural Language Understanding can be applied to music search. (Team Quest)

Modeling data sets and artificially generated data

We are looking for a master’s student who wants to write a master’s thesis on modeling data sets and artificially generated data. It will be great if you have taken generative models courses and put that knowledge to use before. (Team Data mission)

Personalisation of the checkout experience

Come here and write a master’s thesis on personalisation of the checkout experience. You will get to apply state of the art machine learning on real world data to explore an hypothesis, implementing and verifying a prototype on real user interactions. (Team Iron Bank)

Machine learning applied on user subscription

Are you into huge amounts of data? We’d like a master’s thesis on applying machine learning algorithms on massive data sets, to identify users that are likely to cancel their Spotify premium subscriptions. If you have the will and the skills, we have all the data you need! (Team Consumer subscription)

Using Artificial intelligence or Machine learning in Customer Systems

Come help us explore how to best use technology like artificial intelligence, machine learning, smart assistants and bots or UX, in Customer Systems. (Team Customer Systems and Tools)

Models for managing risk in code changes

Come help us figure out which parts of the code are most problematic when it comes to making changes. Based on the data we collect from Continuous Integration, your thesis will define the right model to decide how “dangerous” a change is and how likely it is to fail. (Team Client Build)
