Fun things to do with fingerprinting


Erik Frey just posted some fun things he did using Last.fm's fingerprinter. For example, it's really easy to find out if an artist released "live" versions that are identical to the studio version except that some cheering has been added. In terms of false positives and fingerprinting he raises some interesting questions.

Hi.

I'm coming up to speed on what last.fm is and what music similarity is (or what it is based on).

Can you give us a brief overview of what the fingerprinting program's purpose is?

Thanks.
