W9 - Hearing Meaning In Machine Listening

In any human listening experience, it is the abstract percepts of objects and their properties that provide the most important elements of the experience, but this aspect is difficult to study and discuss. This workshop brings together several perspectives on how meaning is carried by and constructed from sound, approaching from both signal and from semantic directions. The goal is to inform future developments of automatic systems for both creating meaningful sounds, and extracting the meaning from sounds in a human-like way.
