Music genre classification is one of the sub-disciplines of music information retrieval (MIR) with growing popularity among researchers, mainly due to the already open challenges. Although research has been prolific in terms of number of published works, the topic still suffers from a problem in its foundations: there is no clear and formal definition of what genre is. Music categorizations are vague and unclear, suffering from human subjectivity and lack of agreement. In its first part, this…

Exploring online intelligent teaching method with machine learning and SVM algorithm
A method of dividing the error by the proportion of each link's contribution to the error, and the idea that the error of the hidden layer node is the sum of the errors on each link during the forward propagation process are proposed.
Feature-informed Latent Space Regularization for Music Source Separation
This work explores transfer learning strategies to incorporate VGGish features with a state-of-the-art source separation model; V GGish features are known to be a very condensed representation of audio content and have been successfully used in many MIR tasks.

The neglected user in music information retrieval research
This article investigates and discusses literature on the topic of user-centric music retrieval and reflects on why the breakthrough in this field has not been achieved yet, and presents ideas on aspects crucial to consider when elaborating user-aware music retrieval systems.
Music genre classification using a hierarchical long short term memory (LSTM) model
From the experimental results, it is shown that this hierarchical scheme improves the classification accuracy significantly, which is higher than the state-of-the-art approach that uses a single convolutional neural network.
