PhD studentship with the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary

PhD CASE Studentship in collaboration with Omnifone

Semantic Audio: audio signal analysis + Semantic Web = future music production & consumption

Applications are invited for a PhD Studentship starting Spring 2013 to undertake research, supervised by Professor Mark Sandler, in Semantic Audio. This important new research topic in Sound and Music Computing pioneers technologies that will power next generation user experiences of music.

This PhD will combine Queen Mary's Semantic Audio technologies with Omnifone's massive music collection and their cloud computing infrastructure to build the world's largest recommendation engine. It will then investigate the best way to apply Content Semantics to such large collections.
