We propose a learning-based method of estimating the compatibility between vocal and accompaniment audio tracks, i.e. , how well they go with each other when played simultaneously. This task is challenging because it is difficult to formulate hand-crafted rules or construct a large labeled dataset to perform supervised learning. Our method uses s...

We present a novel concept audio–visual object removal in 360-degree videos, in which a target object in a 360-degree video is removed in both the visual and auditory domains synchronously. Previous methods have solely focused on the visual aspect of object removal using video inpainting techniques, resulting in videos with unreasonable remaining s...
Article
For amateur creators, it has been becoming popular to create new content based on existing original work: such new content is called derivative work. We know that derivative creation is popular, but why are individual derivative works created? Although there are several factors that inspire the creation of derivative works, such factors cannot usua...
Conference Paper
We describe the AIST Dance Video Database (AIST Dance DB), a shared database containing original street dance videos with copyright-cleared dance music. Although dancing is highly related to dance music and dance information can be considered an important aspect of music information , research on dance information processing has not yet received mu...
Conference Paper
Audio annotation for music clips is an important task for machine-learning-based music analysis and applications. However, it is a time-consuming task because it often requires repetitive manipulations even though typical audio files often contain repetitive structures (e.g., a song often has similar phrases used multiple times). In this paper we p...
Article
Creating new content based on existing original work is becoming popular especially among amateur creators. Such new content is called derivative work and can be transformed into the next new derivative work. Such derivative work creation is called "N-Th order derivative creation." Although derivative creation is popular, the reason an individual d...

This paper describes a music exploratory search interface called QueryShare, which provides query searching and recommendation functions for query sharing among users. Most people are not expert users who know how to use various music metadata that include automatically estimated musical features to represent their own information needs as a query....
Conference Paper
Many amateur creators now create derivative works and put them on the web. Although there are several factors that inspire the creation of derivative works, such factors cannot usually be observed on the web. In this paper, we propose a model for inferring latent factors from sequences of derivative work posting events. We assume a sequence to be a...
Conference Paper
We propose a novel interface that allows the user to interactively change the playback order of multiple songs by choosing one or more criteria. The criteria include not only the song's title and artist name but also its content automatically estimated by music/singing signal processing and artist-level social analysis. The artist-level social info...

Conference Paper
Innovative service operations in the healthcare field should be cooperative and proactive. However, this is often difficult because separate providers have different ideas and backgrounds and little information of others' practices. For example, we found that workers in a care facility share one notebook for communication and have no incentive to i...
Conference Paper
Although a large number of datasets gathered as Linked Open Data (LOD) is better for data sharing and re-using, the datasets themselves become more difficult to understand. Since each dataset has its own data structure, we need to understand datasets individually. In addition, since the entities in datasets are interconnected, we need to understand...
