    ircammusicgenre
    Ircammusicgenre and Ircammusicmood softwares estimate automatically the belonging of a music track to a set of music genre (electronica, jazz, pop/rock…) and music mood classes (positive, sad, powerful, calming…) Read more
     

    Target users and customers

    Classification of music items are generally primarily based on their belonging to a music genre: electronica, jazz, pop/ rock… However, the editorial meta-data related to the genre are generally only accessible at the artist level (the whole set of music tracks produced by one artist will belong to the same music genre whatever the tracks content). Ircammusicgenre is a software which allows the automatic estimation of the belonging of a music track to music genres. The list of music genres considered by the software can be pre-determined by Ircam (electronica, jazz, pop/rock…) or can be adapted to categories relevant to the partner, provided a sufficient number of sound examples per category.

    Ircammusicgenre also allows to perform multi-labeling of a music track, i.e. assigning a set of genre labels instead of a single genre. In this case, a weighting is assigned to each estimated label.

    Ircammusicmood a software which allows the automatic estimate of the music mood of has music track to music mood. Music mood report to the “mood” that a track suggests: positive, sad, powerful, calming…

    As for the music genre, the list can be predetermined by Ircam or discussed with the partner. Multi-labels can also be applied to the music mood classification.

    Vocapia Research provides a language identification technology* that can identify languages in audio data. (* Under license from LIMSI-CNRS) read more
     

    Target users and customers

    The targeted users and customers of language recognition technologies are actors in the multimedia and call center sectors, including academic and industrial organizations, as well as actors in the defense domain, interested in the processing of audio documents, and in particular if the collection of documents contains multiple languages.

    Application sectors

    A language identification system can be run prior to a speech recognizer. Its output is used to load the appropriate language dependent speech recognition models for the audio document.

    Alternatively, the language identification might be used to dispatch audio documents or telephone calls to a human operators fluent in the corresponding identified language.

    Other potential applications also involve the use of LID as a front-end to a multi-lingual translation system. This technology can also be part of automatic system for spoken data retrieval or automatic enriched transcriptions.

    ircamchord-1
    Ircamchord software estimates automatically the temporal succession of music chords (C-Major, C-minor, …) that makes up a piece of music. Read more
     

    Target users and customers

    One of the most important perceptual aspects of popular music is the succession of chords over time. Two tracks based on the same chord succession are perceived very similar and sometimes indicate a cover-version of the same composition. Automatic estimation of chord succession can therefore be used to perform search by similarity and play-list generation.
    It can therefore benefit to music providers, online music portals.

    Chord notation is also very popular for beginner musicians (a very large amount of guitar tabs are accessible and used over the web). Estimating automatically the chord succession of a given track can therefore be beneficial for personal users through the inclusion of the technology in local software.
