Data scientist working to predict hit music

One data science effort to predict hit music.
A team of scientists from Bristol University in the UK will be watching with particular interest as this year's Grammy Awards ceremony hands out statuettes for musical achievement in 2011. The scientists have developed algorithmic software they say can predict whether a song will be a hit or a flop with 60 percent accuracy, a development that could one day make the job of the Grammy judges much easier.
