English abstract:
In this paper, we propose an initiative for a neutral music recommender system for music consumption and research purposes, that acts as intermediary between the users and music streaming providers. Neutral is this context refers to the utility of the system in making recommendations and should result in the primary objective of satisfying users irrespective of potential side constraints. In contrast to existing individual systems that operate in multistakeholder environments and follow objectives beyond user satisfaction, our proposal entails accessing individual services via a joint proxy that manages an overall user profile and resorts to multiple services for provision of content with the primary goal of optimizing for user satisfaction. Such a system would not only provide a consolidated interface and consistent user experience over the union of accessible catalogs, but also give users increased levels of control over their data and the recommendation process.
