I am an AI researcher specialising in automatic music description. My goal is to give machines the ability to recognise advanced musical concepts to the level of a trained musician. Examples of such concepts include musical chords, keys, instruments and structure. My research has applications both for musicians, who can benefit from new assistive tools for music production and learning, and the general public, who can enjoy a better navigation of the large music collections available on streaming platforms.
