Spotify’s ‘Only You’ gives users personalised experience


Audio streaming app Spotify has announced a new digital experience on Wednesday called ‘Only You.’ It will give users personalised playlists in a shareable form.
According to The Verge, the new feature has been inspired by the company’s feature ‘Wrapped’ that gives users cumulative stats on all the things one listened to on Spotify in a given year. The in-app experience ‘Only You’ will give users a variety of playlists and data insights based on their music listening habits, and a new feature called ‘Blend’ will let two friends automatically merge their musical tastes into a playlist. Per The Verge, among the new experience highlights is ‘Your Dream Dinner Party,’ which lets users pick three artists they would invite to a dinner party with Spotify making a mix for each artist. Another is ‘Your Artist Pairs,’ which highlights unique pairings that show off a listener’s musical range, as well as ‘Your Audio Birth Chart,’ which gives users their ‘Sun artist,’ or the person they listened to the most over the past six months. It will also include a new feature a ‘Moon artist’ option which is the artist they listen to those shows off their emotional side; and their ‘Rising artist,’ which is one they have recently found. The ‘Audio Birth Chart’ and ‘Dream Dinner Party’ will update daily, while the other data visualisation aspects of the feature, like ‘Your Artist Pairs’, is based on a limited set of time and will not update regularly.

Tesla’s in-car cameras will now monitor its autopilot driving

For owners of the Tesla Model 3 or Model Y, it is apparently now possible that the in-car camera will soon be monitoring the vehicle while on autopilot. According to TechCrunch, Tesla has reportedly enabled the capability through a software update. The use of the new feature was originally spotted on Twitter after a current Tesla owner took to the platform to post images of the latest software version on his Model Y. As noted by TechCrunch, Tesla’s vehicles originally used sensors built into the steering wheel to keep drivers’ hands on the wheel while on Autopilot. But according to plenty of articles on the internet, it is very easy to fool the system into thinking your hands are on the wheel.
The new feature also comes only a few days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed the company’s Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, in North America, were being made without radar. In a blog post, Tesla said it will instead “rely on camera vision and neural net processing to deliver Autopilot, Full-Self Driving and certain active safety features.”
The sensors in conjunction with the cameras and LiDar are mainly used to detect spacing and objects around it for things like blind spots, forward collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, and more.
