Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Abstract and goal of the genre detection method

Summary: The abstract of our genre detection method and the goal we try to reach.

Abstract and goal of our genre detection method

Abstract of our genre detection method

Categorizing music isimportant to all music fans nowadays. However, few programs currently existing on the market can automatically, efficiently, and accurately detect the genre of a random chosen song. For example, before customers can search for a list of songs within a certain genre on iTunes, the built-in genre detector for the widely-used ipod series, they have to manually input each song’s genre in order to make it happen. Thus by increasing the accuracy and shortening the detection time, we can come up with a really useful and cool project that will ensure higher quality and customer satisfaction.

Goals

The goal of our genre detection project is to develop a algorithm that detects the genre of any song. The specific genres (our testing pool for now) that we are seeking to detect are rap, classical, rock, jazz, and pop.

Methods of Detection

In our project, we have developed two different techniques to complete the detection process. For both, we created a database “comparison” matrix composed of certain information of the previously mentioned genres. Then in the same way we composed another matrix containing information of the input song and compared it with the database to find the most similar genre. The first technique was with the fast Fourier transform and matrix multiplication. We used matrix multiplication and the dot product to find the similarities between our input song and each genre. The second technique involved finding linear predictive coefficients (LPC), which finds the predicted nth value. The LPC detects genre was based on error while the FFT matrix method achieved the same goal by finding the similarity.
