    ircamsummary-1
    Ircamsummary software creates automatically a music summary of an audio file. It also estimates the temporal structure of a music file in terms of repetition of similar parts Read more
     

    Target users and customers

    Automatic music summary generation aims at providing informative audio preview of the content of a music file (rather than the commonly used first 30s). It can therefore benefit to any service providing access to music items requiring a quick preview of the music files such as music providers, online music portals. It can also be installed on a personal computer as a preview of the local user’s music collection.

    Automatic music structure estimation provides the description of the temporal organization of music files in terms of repetition of parts over time. It can be used for visualization and interaction with the playing of a music file (intelligent forward/ backward, accessing directly the most repeated parts). It can benefit to any developer of music players or software for music interaction.

    Q-Tech-SYNAPSE-QA-Qristal1-newvisuel
    A Question Answering system allows the user to ask questions in natural language and to obtain one or several answers. For boolean and generic questions, our system is able to generate potential questions and to return the corresponding answers. Read more
     

    Target users and customers

    End-user application, Question-Answering is the easiest way to find information for everybody: ask the question as you want and obtain answers, not snippets or pages.

    Application sectors

    Search and find precise answers in any collection of texts, from the Web or any other source (voice recognition, optical character recognition, etc.), with eventual correction of the source text, ability to generate questions from generic requests, eventually a single word, ability to find similar questions and their answers, etc.

    Monolingual and multilingual Question-Answering system. Languages: English, French (+ Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, with partners using the same API).

     
    ircambeat
    Ircambeat software estimates the global and time-variable tempo and meter of a music file. It also estimates the positions of the beats and downbeats over time. Read more
     

    Target users and customers

    Tempo and meter of a music file are among the major perceptual characteristics of a music file. Their automatic estimation allows to get these values for large collections of music files. They can therefore be used to perform automatic music classification of large music collections, search by similarity over large music collections and automatic music play-list generation. The technology can therefore benefit to music providers, online music portals or offline media-player developers.

    Beats and downbeats define the time-grid of a music file. They are used as front-end – for the estimation of many other music parameters and – for other processings (time-stretching, segmentation, DJ-ing). The technology for their automatic estimation can therefore benefit to music software developers (music production, music DJ-ing software).

    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.
