Automatic Music Genre Classification Using Hybrid Genetic Algorithms

  title={Automatic Music Genre Classification Using Hybrid Genetic Algorithms},
  author={George V. Karkavitsas and George A. Tsihrintzis},
This paper aims at developing an Automatic Music Genre Classification system and focuses on calculating algorithms that (ideally) can predict the music class in which a music file belongs. The proposed system is based on techniques from the fields of Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition, and Information Retrieval, as well as Heuristic Optimization Methods. One thousand music files are used for training and validating the classification system. These files are distributed equally in ten… Expand
