T4 - INTELLIGENT AUDIO SYSTEMS: A REVIEW OF THE FOUNDATIONS AND APPLICATIONS OF SEMANTIC AUDIO ANALYSIS AND MUSIC INFORMATION RETRIEVAL
Perfecto Herrera-Boyer, Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Jay LeBoeuf, Imagine Research
This tutorial will target students, researchers, and industry audio engineers who are unfamiliar with the field of Music Information Retrieval (MIR). We will demonstrate the myriad of exciting technologies enabled by the fusion of basic signal processing techniques with machine learning. The presentation will be a high-level, applied, multimedia-rich, overview of the building blocks of MIR systems. Our goal is to make highly-interdisciplinary technologies and dauntingly-complex algorithms approachable. In the spirit of modern cooking shows, we will perform numerous demonstrations, including on-the-fly coding of basic "intelligent audio" systems, prepared system demonstrations, and prepared audio examples demonstrating more complex systems.
