The Fifth Annual Metadata Summit is for experts, by experts — the program will amplify the importance of data, provide a high level forum for discussion, and attract key participants. For more information about the Metadata Summit, please click here.

Research shows that music fans are now listening to more playlists than albums. Voice control and search is being rapidly deployed by the consumer electronics industry. This panel will discuss the role and types of metadata in scaling playlists, as well as providing the underlying information for accurate voice search.

Metadata Summit Supporting Sponsors include Berklee Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship/Open Music Initiative, DataArt, Digimarc, NPREX, OpenPlay, Quantone, SOCAN, SoundExchange, and TiVo.
