Slides: Deep learning for music data processing – a personal (re)view

I was invited to give a talk to the Deep Learning for Speech and Language Winter Seminar @ UPC,  Barcelona. Since UPC is the university where I did my undergaduate sudies, it was a great pleasure to give an introductory talk about how our community is using deep learning for approaching music technology problems.

Several key papers were chronologically listed and briefly described: pioneer papers using MLP [1], RNNs [2], LSTMs [3] and CNNs [4] for music data processing; and pioner papers using symbolic data [1], spectrograms [5] and waveforms [6] – among others.
