Engineering  |  News releases  |  Research  |  Technology November 30, 2016 MusicNet is a new publicly available dataset from UW researchers that labels each note of 330 classical compositions in ways that can teach machine learning algorithms about the basic structure of music.Yngve Bakken Nilsen, flickr The composer Johann Sebastian Bach left behind an incomplete fugue upon his death, either as an unfinished work or perhaps as a puzzle for future composers to solve. A classical music dataset released Wednesday by University of Washington researchers — which enables machine learning algorithms to learn the features of classical music from scratch — raises the likelihood that a computer could expertly finish the job. MusicNet is the first publicly available large-scale classical music dataset with curated fine-level annotations. It’s designed to allow…
