Automatic Feature Extraction for Classifying Audio Data

by   Katharina Morik, et al.

Today, many private households as well as broadcasting or film companies own large collections of digital music plays. These are time series that differ from, e.g., weather reports or stocks market data. The task is normally that of classification, not prediction of the next value or recognizing a shape or motif. New methods for extracting features that allow to classify audio data have been developed. However, the development of appropriate feature extraction methods is a tedious effort, particularly because every new classification task requires tailoring the feature set anew. This paper presents a unifying framework for feature extraction from value series. Operators of this framework can be combined to feature extraction methods automatically, using a genetic programming approach. The construction of features is guided by the performance of the learning classifier which uses the features. Our approach to automatic feature extraction requires a balance between the completeness of the methods on one side and the tractability of searching for appropriate methods on the other side. In this paper, some theoretical considerations illustrate the trade-off. After the feature extraction, a second process learns a classifier from the transformed data. The practical use of the methods is shown by two types of experiments: classification of genres and classification according to user preferences.
