Video of the Month: MusicNet: The First Publicly Available Dataset of Labeled Classical Music

University of Washington researchers have created the first publicly available dataset of labeled classical music, named MusicNet. MusicNet is a collection of 330 freely-licensed classical music recordings, together with over 1 million annotated labels indicating the precise time of each note in every recording, the instrument that plays each note, and the note’s position in the metrical structure of the compositionMore »

Recent Patents in Signal Processing (January 2017) – Emotion Recognition
