Spotify Music Recommendation System

Create a Nearest Neighbor recommendation algorithm in Python to predict a playlist given an input song a user likes. This project would involve: • Harvesting a massive dataset of songs from Spotify via a developer account • Vectorizing and cleaning song metadata into feature library with Pandas DataFrames • Implementing ‘lazy’ learning algorithm for playlist generation • Experimentation with distance and similarity functions • Assess model performance by evaluating a test sample of users like their generated playlists
