BBC use Segmentino in research on auto-editing, with some success
I’m happy that Segmentino, our Vamp implementation of my music segmentation algorithm is being used at the Beeb. BBC R&D did some research to find efficient ways of editing down a piece of music to 30 seconds, as Chris Baume describes in this blog post. Their tests suggest that the more sophisticated automatic methods (including the one using Segmentino) perform similarly to manual edits. The research was carried out—under Chris’s supervision—by Adib Mehrabi.
Incidentally, Segmentino has recently been used in other research, too, in Wang’s cool paper about automatic segmentation of full-length concert videos, as seen at ISMIR last week.
