The Wide World Of Music Recognition Technology
Who could have imagined that one day we would use our phones to know the title of a piece of music?
Some readers will perhaps remember? When we had our fingers crossed listening to the FM radio while hoping that the radio host gives the title of the song played…
Those day are gone! Now, we simply launch an App and in many cases, we obtain the song title almost instantly.
Most people are by now familiar with how the Shazam music service seems to magically identify the name of the song playing in the background.
With 120 million active users, Shazam’s popularity means it’s the most familiar use for this technology, which itself is the most prominent part of a larger category commonly known as Automatic Content Recognition (ACR).
A very nice article to discover the technology behind music recognition.
