The Interactive Audio LabWelcome to the Interactive Audio Lab, headed by Bryan Pardo. We are in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department of Northwestern University . We apply machine learning, signal processing, natural language processing, and database search techniques to make new auditory tools and interfaces.
A music search engine you can sing to
Estimate missing information in audio
Audio Source Separation|
Amplify the sounds you want, not the ones you don't
Separation by repetition, by repetition, by repetition, ...
Adaptive User Interfaces|
Don't learn the tool, let the tool learn you
Jazz Score / Performance Database|
Teaching a machine to hear like an improviser
