This paper investigates new learning algorithms (LF I and LF II) based on Lyapunov function for the training of feedforward neural networks. It is observed that such algorithms have interesting parallel with the popular backpropagation (BP) algorithm where the fixed learning rate is replaced by an adaptive learning rate computed using convergence theorem(More)
Extraction of predominant melody from the musical performances containing various instruments is one of the most challenging task in the field of music information retrieval and computational musicology. This paper presents a novel framework which estimates predominant vocal melody in real-time by tracking various sources with the help of harmonic clusters(More)
For music transcription or musical source separation, apart from knowing the multi-F0 contours, it is also important to know which F0 has been played by which instrument. This paper focuses on this aspect, i.e. given the polyphonic audio along with its multiple F0 contours, the proposed system clusters them so as to decide 'which instrument played when.'(More)
In this paper, we investigate the so-called " Sznajd Model " (SM) in one dimension, which is a simple cellular automata approach to consensus formation among two opposite opinions (described by spin up or down). To elucidate the SM dynamics, we first provide results of computer simulations for the spatio-temporal evolution of the opinion distribution L(t),(More)
This work aims at searching for discriminatively learned features that characterize an audio source and make it identifiable even in polyphonic audio. Probabilistic latent component analysis (PLCA) is an effective method for decomposing a polyphonic signal into individual sources using source specific dictionaries. This work proposes a novel discriminative(More)
Source transcription of pitched polyphonic music entails providing the pitch (F0) values corresponding to each source in a separate channel. This problem is an important step towards many important problems in music and speech processing. It involves 1) estimating the multiple F0 values in each short time frame, and 2) clustering the F0 values into streams(More)
We investigate the spatial distribution and the global frequency of agents who can either cooperate or defect. The agent interaction is described by a deterministic, non-iterated prisoner's dilemma game, further each agent only locally interacts with his neighbors. Based on a detailed analysis of the local payoff structures we derive critical conditions for(More)
This paper is concerned with the design of a neuro-adaptive trajectory tracking controller. The paper presents a new control scheme based on inversion of a feedforward neural model of a robot arm. The proposed control scheme requires two modules. The first module consists of an appropriate feedforward neural model of forward dynamics of the robot arm that(More)
