MPEG-7 Audio: Tools for Semantic Audio Description and Processing
While previous well-known MPEG standards (such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4)
were targetted at audiovisual coding, MPEG-7 focuses on efficient search and
retrieval, filtering and semantic description of content. The talk will explain
the background of MPEG-7 and provide an overview of the MPEG-7 Audio architecture.
It will discuss how MPEG-7 audio tools can be used for semantic audio description
and processing, and illustrate a number of application examples.
