The Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange (MIREX) is an annual evaluation campaign for Music Information Retrieval (MIR) algorithms, coupled to the International Society (and Conference) for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR). MIREX is hosted by the International Music Information Retrieval Systems Evaluation Laboratory (IMIRSEL) at the Graduate School of Library Information Sciences (GSLIS) which is part of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).
Current and Future MIREXs are in part facilitated by the work of the Networked Environment for Music Analysis (NEMA) project. The NEMA projects aims to automate and expose the workings of MIREX and MIR experimentation/evaluation to the MIR community, helping to deal with issues of collection/data/code sharing within the community by handling issues relating to copyright and IP restrictions by allowing MIR researchers to work (remotely) with resources without having to obtain licenses to the content/code.
MIR tasks evaluated at past MIREXs include:
- Audio Test/Train tasks
- Audio Artist Identification
- Audio Genre Classification
- Audio Music Mood Classification
- Audio Classical Composer Identification
- Audio Onset detection
- Audio Key detection
- Audio Tag Classification
- Audio Cover Song Identification
- Real-time Audio to Score Alignment (a.k.a Score Following)
- Query by Singing/Humming
- Multiple Fundamental Frequency Estimation & Tracking
- Audio Chord Estimation
- Audio Melody Extraction
- Query by Tapping
- Audio Beat Tracking
- Audio Music Similarity and Retrieval
- Structural Segmentation
We recently have merged all current and previous iterations of the MIREX wiki into a single wiki installation to make it easier to manage. All the pages, images, abstracts, and images have been migrated, but some links and images may still be broken. We're currently manually inspecting all pages, but would appreciate your help in correcting any errors you see.
Content on the wiki is now organized into mediawiki namespaces, one for each year. You can view the current 2010 content here: 2010:Main_Page
Similarly for previous content.
All links to older wiki content will be redirected to this new wiki, and should take you to the correct page on the new installation, but please update any bookmarks or links you may have which point into current or old wiki content.
