Everything you need to know so you can efficiently use Tastoid.
We have been working on this idea of a more accurate movie recommendation system for 3 years based on attributes (Plot, Mood...).
Usually recommendation systems generate suggestions based on all the titles liked by the user, but our intuition is that a person likes different types of movies (e.g. no-brainer movies and films d'auteur). We believe that our recommendation system would be significantly more accurate if it identifies these different categories and generate recommendations for each subgroup.
Our search engine is semantic, i.e. it can understands natural language. A few tips to use it more efficiently:
- Looking for what to watch next? Describe in your own words any aspect of the content you are after (e.g. "nostalgic coming-of-age movie teenagers 60s" or "eastwood in a western" ) .
- To further narrow results, press to include tags in your query (e.g. "#atmospheric" or "#60s" ).
- Looking for a specific record? Just begin typing and predictions will appear (e.g. "quentin t" or "pulp f").
