A Computer Model Of Music Recognition
Human-like recognition of sounds by computer is an important element in the overall effort to make computers more interactive and communi-cative with the outside world. In a typical application sound is first converted into the required digital form for computer processing. Next, the digitized sound waves are automatically analyzed by special computer programs to identify the contents of the sounds. These analysis programs can therefore produce data suitable for later general-purpose digital computer programs that do not know or care that the input data was originally in sound form.
