)We are very pleased to have Meinard Müller from the International AudioLabs Erlangen as our first speaker for the MIR meetup. He will give an overview of the current state-of-the-art in Music Information Retrieval and an outlook on future directions and research problems. After the talk, there will be the opportunity for personal conversations with him and some members of his research group as well as representatives from various Berlin/Potsdam based university groups and companies working on MIR.
Meinard Müller is professor for Semantic Audio Processing at the International Audio Laboratories Erlangen, Germany, a joint institution of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. His research interests include music processing, music information retrieval, audio signal processing, content-based multimedia, and motion retrieval.
He will cover several chapters from his 2015 book, Fundamentals of Music Processing ( https://www.audiolabs-erlangen.de/fau/professor/mueller/bookFMP ), as well as the current trends in MIR.
