    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.

    Application sectors

    • Online music providers
    • Online music portals
    • Music players developers
    • Music software developers
     
    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.
