Audio Content Analysis
Audio information retrieval; Semantic inference in audio
An audio signal is a signal that contains information in the audible frequency range. Audio content analysis refers to a set of theories, algorithms and systems that aim at extracting descriptors or metadata related to audio content and allowing search, retrieval and other user actions performed on audio signals.
Multimedia content analysis has been one of the most booming research directions in the past years. With the objective of providing fast, natural, intuitive and personalized content-based access to vast multimedia data collections, and building on the synergy of many scientific disciplines, such as signal processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, information retrieval, information theory, natural language processing and psychology, the research initiative born around the end of the 1980s has succeeded in inspiring and mobilizing enormous number of researchers worldwide....
