This one-day workshop (co-organised by Dr Yue (Frank) Gao) will provide good opportunities to learn the first-hand development and demonstration of the Weightless M2M via a number of keynote speakers from both industry and academia to address application layer, physical layer, security and regulations. A panel discussion will be held to discuss how to enable real benefits to build strong partnerships between academics and companies to tackle the future challenge of M2M and IoT research and development. To create more interactions between industry and academic, a poster and demo session will be held during the coffee break and lunchtime. The overall objective of this workshop is to bring various state-of-the-art research activities in academia and industry together and understand the future M2M communication requirements and potentials.

Abstract: Transcribing lyrics from musical audio is a challenging research problem which holds promise for the attractive task of lyric-based retrieval. However, automatic lyric transcription has not yet benefited from advances in the related field of automatic speech recognition, owing to the prevalent musical accompaniment and differences between the spoken and sung voice. In this talk I will outline our recent progress in automatic lyric transcription, which exploits repetitive segments for improved accuracy on acapella vocals. I will then outline our current direction of research and finally open the floor for questions and discussion.
