Spezielle Kapitel aus Informatik: Music Information Retrieval

344.301, KV, 3h - 4.5 ECTS, SS 2013

Assist.-Prof. Dr. Markus Schedl

Time: Thursday, 13:45 - 16:15

Start: Thursday, March 7, 2013

Location: MT 226

The lecture will be taught in English.


This lecture gives an introduction to techniques and applications used in Music Information Retrieval. The main topics covered are feature extraction (content- and context-based features), similarity measurement, applications of MIR, data projection and visualization, and user interfaces.

The lecture will be accompanied by a pratical part, in which students will form groups and select one type of music context-based similarity category (for example, music similarities derived from Web pages, from P2P network traffic or queries, from co-occurrences in user's playlist, and so on). Then, different approaches and algorithms to determine music similarity will be re-implemented (according to literature that will largely be provided by the lecturer). Students are required to give a short presentation of their findings.

Please note that the lecture will be held partly blocked: see preliminary schedule below.
