Algorithms and representations for supporting online music creation with large-scale audio databases

Gerard Roma, Xavier Serra
2015 Zenodo  
As a generic low-level representation for audio signals, we analyze the framework of cepstral coefficients, evaluating their performance with example classification tasks.  ...  We show that several time series analysis features computed from the cepstral coefficients complement traditional statistics for improved performance.  ...  Table 4 .3 shows the coefficients of the model.  ...

Modeling social norms in real-world agent-based simulations

Rahmatollah Beheshti
2015 AI Matters  
Various theories have been put forth about the functioning of social norms.  ...  Most of the existing work on norms focuses on abstract applications, and very few realistic normative simulations of human societies can be found.  ...  This work introduces a model of linguistic diffusion in social networks, to analytically derive time to convergence, and to account for the innovation phase of lexical dynamics in networks.  ...

Papers in Austronesian subgrouping and dialectology

Bowden, John (Ed.), Himmelmann, Nikolaus (Ed.), CRCL, CRCL, Pacific Linguistics And/Or The Author(S)
But further investigation is needed to determine whether the variation is due to lexical diffusion or conditioned by other phonological and social factors.  ...  This indicates an early borrowing before dialectal diffusion.  ...  A theory of lexical diffusion might suggest that these words remained untouched by the weakening rule which was clearly still operative when loan words entered the lexicon, though the question remains  ...

A Metaverse: taxonomy, components, applications, and open challenges

Sang-Min Park, Young-Gab Kim
2022 IEEE Access  
The integration of enhanced social activities and neural-net methods requires a new definition of Metaverse suitable for the present, different from the previous Metaverse.  ...  Unlike previous studies on the Metaverse based on Second Life, the current Metaverse is based on the social value of Generation Z that online and offline selves are not different.  ...  In addition, High-contrast vision, long-distance vision, and volume augmentation for people with visual difficulties enable people with disabilities to live the same lives as ordinary people in Metaverse  ...
