    Frauenhofer has been working on this: http://www.wired.com/news/print/0,1294,57317,00.html
    Dunno if there’s anything available yet though

    Purdue Engineers have come up with an image search engine . If we are lucky they’ll work on the audio one next. That will solve the problem of songs being stuck in our heads that we can’t remember fully.

    Some people the apparently used to work for Yamaha worked on some music recognition stuff, but they changed their plans and started working on a copyright cop bot (or whatever).

    This is wonderful! Thank you! I can’t wait till all these tools are actually out there!

    As it was I found the song by searching through iTunes, where it turned out that I had cleverly given the song in question a five star rating while listening to it on my shiny new iPod. I did have quite a few duds before finding the right tune though.

    Why hasn’t it hit Norway yet, I wonder?

    Over here in Canada, we rely on the Sad Goat to sort out the songs that whirl ’round our heads and whose title we can’t remember. The Sad Goat is a 1-800 hundred toll-free phone number for Richardson’s Roundup, a national radio show on the public broadcaster, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: http://www.cbc.ca/roundup/

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
