Automatic rank-ordering of singing vocals with twin-neural network

Chitralekha Gupta, Lin Huang, Haizhou Li
2020 Zenodo  
We adopt a twin-neural network (Siamese) that learns to choose a preferred candidate in terms of singing quality between two inputs.  ...  With a few such pairwise comparisons, this method generates a relative rank-order of a complete list of singers.  ...  Proceedings of the 21st ISMIR Conference, Montréal, Canada,  ...

Evolution of tonal organization in music mirrors symbolic representation of perceptual reality. Part-1: Prehistoric

Aleksey Nikolsky
2015 Frontiers in Psychology  
Music seems to act as a unique medium of symbolic representation of reality through the concept of pitch.  ...  Tonal organization of pitch reflects the culture of thinking, adopted as a standard within a community of music users.  ...  This mapping anatomically corresponds to memorization of places of tension in the vocal folds, in successive order.  ...

Language and life history: A new perspective on the development and evolution of human language

John L. Locke, Barry Bogin
2006 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
A theoretical consequence of our proposal is that fossil evidence of the uniquely human stages may be used, with other findings, to date the emergence of language.  ...  fitness and ultimately integrating performative and pragmatic skills with linguistic knowledge in a broad faculty of language.  ...  Elman (1993) used neural network simulations to show how networks can learn certain forms of linguistic structure if memory is started small and then gradually expanded.  ...

Multilinear Grammar: Ranks and Interpretations

Dafydd Gibbon, Sascha Griffiths
2017 Open Linguistics  
The architecture defines a Sui Generis Condition on ranks, from discourse through utterance and phrasal structures to the word, with its sub-ranks of morphology and phonology.  ...  We suggest that the Rank Interpretation Architecture and its multilinear properties provide systematic design features of human languages, contrasting with unordered lists of key properties or single structural  ...  modelled by left branching or right branching structures; 4. at word rank and the morphology and phonology sub-ranks, for the linear combinatorics of inflectional and derivational affixation, compounding  ...

From mouth to hand: gesture, speech, and the evolution of right-handedness

Michael C Corballis
2003 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Nevertheless, the long association of vocalization with manual gesture left us a legacy of right-handedness.  ...  Its homologue in monkeys has nothing to do with vocal control, but contains the so-called "mirror neurons," the code for both the production of manual reaching movements and the perception of the same  ...  To my knowledge, there is no evidence as to the neural control, cortical or otherwise, of vocalization in the great apes.  ...

Human Group Identity: Language and a Social Mind [chapter]

Luis P. Villarreal
2008 Origin of Group Identity  
Thus, human fathers became involved from infancy with their offspring and also form strong emotional bonds to their mates.  ...  The use of song and voice assisted the extension of the maternal bond.  ...  One's own response seems to become automatic with a loss of agency. Thus internal volition becomes subjugated to external vocal stream. This sense of will may have a specific brain substrate.  ...
