"Computing with words" Concept Applied to Musical Information Retrieval

  title={"Computing with words" Concept Applied to Musical Information Retrieval},
  author={Bozena Kostek},
  journal={Electr. Notes Theor. Comput. Sci.},
The objective of the paper is to provide cognitive-based mechanisms underlying processing of musical instrument sounds. The system proposed by the author based on the rough set method and on fuzzy logic provides knowledge on how humans internally represent such notions as quality and timbre and therefore it allows for the human-like automatic processing of musical data. Therefore "Computing with words" concept can be used in musical information retrieval domain by o ering better processing of… CONTINUE READING
