Evaluation of Algorithms Using Games: The Case of Music Tagging

  title={Evaluation of Algorithms Using Games: The Case of Music Tagging},
  author={Edith Law and Kris West and Michael I. Mandel and Mert Bay and J. Stephen Downie},
Search by keyword is an extremely popular method for retrieving music. To support this, novel algorithms that automatically tag music are being developed. The conventional way to evaluate audio tagging algorithms is to compute measures of agreement between the output and the ground truth set. In this work, we introduce a new method for evaluating audio tagging algorithms on a large scale by collecting set-level judgments from players of a human computation game called TagATune. We present the… CONTINUE READING
