Pandora


When was the last time you fell in love with a new artist or song?

At Pandora, we have a single mission: To play only music you'll love. (OK, we've added comedy as well so we're also up for playing some jokes you'll love.)

To understand just how we do this, and why we think we do it really, really well, you need to know about the Music Genome Project®.

Since we started back in 2000, we have been hard at work on the Music Genome Project. It's the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken.

Together our team of musician-analysts has been listening to music, one song at a time, studying and collecting literally hundreds of musical details on every track - melody, harmony, instrumentation, rhythm, vocals, lyrics ... and more! We continue this work every day to keep up with the incredible flow of great new music coming from studios, stadiums and garages around the country.

With Pandora you can explore this vast trove of music to your heart's content. Just drop the name of one of your favorite songs, artists or genres into Pandora and let the Music Genome Project go. It will quickly scan its entire world of analyzed music, almost a century of popular recordings - new and old, well known and completely obscure - to find songs with interesting musical similarities to your choice. Then sit back and enjoy as it creates a listening experience full of current and soon-to-be favorite songs for you.

You can create up to 100 unique "stations." And you can even refine them. If it's not quite right you can tell it so and it will get better for you.

The Music Genome Project was founded by musicians and music-lovers. We believe in the value of music and have a profound respect for those who create it. We like all kinds of music, from the most obtuse bebop, to the most tripped-out drum n bass, to the simplest catchy pop tune. Our mission is to help you connect with the music YOU love.

YuMe


The Science Behind Influence™

YuMe is a multi-screen video advertising technology company that is defining the next generation of TV brand advertising. As TV viewing audiences continue to fragment across screens, content types, and different consumer electronic platforms it becomes increasingly hard for a brand to reach their desired audience.

We embed software (our audience-aware YuMe SDK) in applications, video players, and consumer electronics allowing a once video ad creative to run seamlessly across all screens while also collecting data about the audience and context where the ad ran. That data powers our placement quality index (PQI) that finds the best placement to drive attention and campaign performance. We also collect first-party data via our SDKs that enables our data science engine to produce the next generation of digital brand advertising targeting—finding brand receptive audience segments who are most likely to respond to your brand message.

We believe that dramatic shifts in consumer viewing behavior are heralding a new era for digital brand advertising—redefining traditional TV brand advertising. By taking the influence and reach of TV and marrying it with the science and accuracy of digital we are building a platform for the next generation of TV brand advertising—The Science Behind Influence.
