Profile

He started his research on computational auditory scene analysis in 1990, and developed a probabilistic network model to recognize musical events such as frequency components, notes and chords in a single hierarchical structure. Since 1996 to now, he has been leading research projects for fast and robust media search and recognition. The developed techniques are widely used in various applications around us, including Internet media-content monitoring systems and music/video copyright management systems for broadcasters. His recent research interests include cross-modal media information processing and unsupervised learning for articifial intelligence, that can learn to recognize and search audio/visual objects/concepts by itself.
