Course DescriptionThis course will introduce you to a multidisciplinary field of music information retrieval, that deals with extracting information from audio and symbolic music representations. Would you like to know how Youtube finds out that a video has a copyrighted audio track? How does Spotify know, what music would you enjoy? How does one create a karaoke version of a song by separating the melody from the rest? In this course, you will find out the magic behind many such techniques for working with musical audio. We will also discuss the properties of the human auditory system and learn how to extract the most suitable data representations from the digital audio signal. In the second half of the course, we will discuss the application of the state of the art deep learning techniques in music information retrieval.
