Mana, a Tool for Human-Supervised Statistical Analysis in Audio-Content Extraction

Nowadays, meta-data and audio descriptors extraction (used in classification, for instance) is engaged in a rather blind and brute-force method, computing the most possible and then selecting what works using an often long and boring statistical analysis. Moreover, this analysis barely takes into account the intrinsic sense these descriptors may carry. Mana is graphical user-interface (GUI) based system that aims at adding a bit of human supervision in the process, combining state-of-the-art classification methods (in audio-content extraction and classification) with an ease of use that provides the user with direct control over descriptors and their significance in classification.
