Résultat de la volonté des établissements de recherche réunis au sein du Comité de Site Math-STIC de Rennes, le Colloquium a pour but de réunir périodiquement l'ensemble des chercheurs, enseignants-chercheurs et étudiants de la place rennaise qui s'intéressent aux sciences du numérique. Depuis le 17 avril 2013, et environ tous les deux mois, un nouveau cycle de belles conférences scientifiques se tient dans l'amphithéâtre du centre Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique

Lors de cette quatrième édition du colloquium, trois exposés ont été présentés.

Mark Plumbey Making Sense of Sound and Music (durée: 57: 11 mn)

Note: la séance des questions est à 47:25

Abstract:

Sound and music surrounds us all the time. Often we hear all this without really noticing: it just forms part of the background to our lives. The human ability to listen to sounds is something that is very hard for computers; but we are now beginning to build sound processing methods that can help us.

In this talk I will discuss some of these techniques that can separate out different sound sources from a mixture, follow the notes and the beats in a piece of music, or show us the sound in new visual ways. These « machine listening » algorithms offer the potential to make sense of the huge amount of sound and music in our digital world: helping us to analyze sounds like heartbeats or birdsong, find the music we want in huge collections of music tracks, or to create music in new ways.
