Music/Signal Processing at the University of Tokyo, by Shigeki Sagayama

Friday, september the 9th, at 11 am
Télécom ParisTech (Dareau)
Room: DA-006
Author: Pr. Shigeki Sagayama, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo

Selected topics from multi-pitch analysis and source separation/modification of music signals based on GMM and NMF, key/tempo modification, chord detection, key identification, score following, genre/mood classification, rhythm recognition, vocal cancelation (producing a “Karaoke”), automatic accompaniment, automatic music composition, arrangement, fingering decision and other topics will be addressed in this talk. In the past decade, music signal and information processing has made a significant progress with probabilistic modeling and machine-learning algorithms such as hidden Markov model (HMM), Gaussian mixture model (GMM), non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) and conditional random field (CRF). A short introduction to the university of Tokyo will be also presented.
