(3cr.) This course deals with both methodology and specific
applications that attempt to algorithmically annotate, understand,
recognize, and categorize music in symbolic (score like) form.
Particular applications will include key finding, harmonic analysis,
note spelling, rhythm recognition, meter induction, piano fingering,
and various classification problems such as genre or composer
identification.  The methodology we will employ will be probabilistic
and will include ideas from Machine Learning such as optimal
classifiers, hidden Markov models, and Bayesian networks.  Students
will have computing assignments, present papers, and be expected to
implement solutions to problems using a high-level language such as R
or Matlab.
