How Bad Is Your Spotify Performance? Makes Use Of An Ai Bot That Assesses Your Taste In Music Ruthlessly

5/5 - (1 vote)

Undoubtedly, 2022 has been a terrible year, but do you know what else has been terrible? Here is a list of your Spotify listening habits, according to an artificial intelligence bot that has been built for this purpose. 

What would you say if we told you about How Bad Is Your Spotify?, a project by the digital culture website The Pudding? You could let a bot destroy any sense of pride or self-respect you had in your taste in music. 

Log in to your Spotify account, answer a few questions, and wait patiently to discover what the bot has to say as it makes fun of your taste in music throughout the process. A full report is given at the end that summarizes things like the tracks that you listen to a lot, the artists that you stan to an uncomfortable extent, along with some other little notes that might make you cry.

It is the exact opposite of Spotify Wrapped, which provides you with the same kind of data but in a less judgmental way. Spotify Wrapped also allows you to come up with your conclusions about yourself.

This bot, however, has been able to “learn on a corpus of over two million indicators of objectively good music, which include Pitchfork reviews, record store recommendations, and even subreddits you have never heard of,” so it is clear that it has this knowledge. I am not usually the one that handles making the rules. I apologize for that.

I’m glad to report that none of your stats are public anywhere. However, many brave souls have taken to the Internet to do so anyway.
