VSCO’s new Discover feature is powered by really cool AI with a really pretentious name

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

VSCO might not be as popular (or ego-driven) as Instagram, but it's made a comfortable name for itself among photography circles. Rather than dig through piles of low-effort content rated by likes or votes, VSCO strips things down to the just the basics: photos, messages, and you. Now the app is making it a bit easier to find the types of photos you might like, too, with a novel Discover feature that is advertised as being able to match emotional and aesthetic content, all powered by VSCO's pretentiously named "Ava" AI. 

To be frank, if you've seen one system for personalized recommendations, you've pretty much seen them all, but that's not entirely true in this case.

Every week on that day I get a new playlist tuned to my preferences based on what I've been listening to (you can check out this week's glory here). The rush of Monday news is that much easier with adequate tunes. Now SoundCloud is getting in on the action with their own personalized playlists.
