The music industry is one that impacts a global population; Apple Music, Spotify, and Pandora have more than 200 million listeners worldwide. Though many of these listeners may be secular, and may view Christian music with some negative connotation, our team took on the mission of targeting these millions of music listeners and bringing them to a more positive place in their lives.
Moodify is a tool that uses sentiment analysis to gradually drive users from strong, negative, offensive music to music that is positive and uplifting. This is done with the hopes of bringing users from a low place in their lives to a place where they might potentially be more receptive to the word of God.
Moodify provides this service by running songs through IBM Watson’s Tone Analyzer API and the Gensim Python package to perform the sentiment analysis.
