Audio Gets Smart: A Workshop on Semantic Audio Analysis

Document Thumbnail

[feature] The AES has recently formed a new technical committee, under the direction of Mark Sandler, concerned with semantic audio analysis. This committee held an inaugural workshop at the AES 115th Convention in New York last year, during which three key specialists presented their ideas on audio semantics. Dan Ellis of the Laboratory for Recognition and Organization of Speech and Audio (LabROSA), Columbia University, New York, provided a broad overview of the topic with examples of possible applications. Michael Casey, from the Centre for Computational Creativity at City University, London, described studio tools and techniques using MPEG 7. Jürgen Herre, of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) in Germany, spoke on semantic audio analysis and metadata standards. (Recordings of this workshop are available either on MP3 CD-ROM or audio cassette from Conference Media Group via the AES website link at:
