Project Details

DeepMusic: Similarity Search and Beyond

Laboratory : LSIR Semester / Master Proposal


Deep Learning has advanced machine learning applications such as classification, forecasting, prediction, and information retrieval. Especially, deep neural networks model such as convolutional neural networks and Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) has been applied to non textual data such as images, audios, and videos. In this project, we will develop a model for music representation learning. Possible applications include similarity search, music generation.
