  • Kitahara, Tetsuro; Giraldo, Sergio; Ramírez, Rafael,1966- (Aalborg University Copenhagen, 2017)
    In this paper, we present JamSketch, a real-time improvisation support system which automatically generates melodies according to melodic outlines drawn by the users. The system generates the improvised melodies based on ...
  • Bantula, Helena; Giraldo, Sergio; Ramírez, Rafael,1966- (International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR), 2016)
    Computational expressive music performance studies the analysis and characterisation of the deviations that a musician introduces when performing a musical piece. It has been studied in a classical context where timing and ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Hernando, Javier; Ejarque, Pascual (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2007)
    Jitter and shimmer are measures of the cycle-to-cycle variations of fundamental frequency and amplitude, respectively, which have been largely used for the description of pathological voice quality. Since they characterise ...
  • Palomares, Roberto P.; Haro Ortega, Gloria; Ballester, Coloma (SCITEPRESS – Science and Technology Publications, Lda., 2017)
    This paper presents a novel variational approach for the joint estimation of scene flow and occlusions. Our method does not assume that a depth sensor is available. Instead, we use a stereo sequence and exploit the fact ...
  • Prieto, Luis P.; Martínez-Maldonado, Roberto; Spikol, Daniel; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Rodríguez-Triana, María Jesús; Ochoa, Xavier (CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2017)
    Learning is a complex, mostly invisible process that happens across spaces, occurring in the physical world but also increasingly in virtual worlds or web-based spaces. In order to explore what happens in such blended ...
  • Chordia, Parag; Şentürk, Sertan (MIT Press, 2013)
    In many non-Western musical traditions, such as North Indian classical music (NICM), melodies do not conform to the major and minor modes, and they commonly use tunings that have no fixed reference (e.g., A = 440 Hz). We ...
  • Lazcano, Vanel; Garrido Ostermann, Luis; Ballester, Coloma (SCITEPRESS, 2018)
    This paper deals with motion estimation of objects in a video sequence. This problem is known as optical flow estimation. Traditional models to estimate it fail in presence of occlusions and non-uniform illumination. To ...
  • Nuanáin, Cárthach Ó; Jordà Puig, Sergi; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964- (Springer, 2018)
    Concatenative synthesis is a sample-based approach to sound creation used frequently in speech synthesis and, increasingly, in musical contexts. Unit selection, a key component, is the process by which sounds are chosen ...
  • Morillo, Paz; Ràfols, Carla; Villar, Jorge L. (Springer, 2016)
    We put forward a new family of computational assumptions, the Kernel Matrix Diffi-Hellman Assumption. Given some matrix A sampled from some distribution D, the kernel assumption says that it is hard to find \in the exponent" ...
  • Faraldo Pérez, Ángel; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975-; Jordà Puig, Sergi; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964- (Springer, 2016)
    In this paper we study key estimation in electronic dance music, an umbrella term referring to a variety of electronic music subgenres intended for dancing at nightclubs and raves. We start by defining notions of tonality ...
  • Delli Bovi, Claudio; Espinosa-Anke, Luis; Navigli, Roberto (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    We present KB-UNIFY, a novel approach for integrating the output of different Open Information Extraction systems into a single unified and fully disambiguated knowledge repository. KB-UNIFY consists of three main steps: ...
  • Ronzano, Francesco; Saggion, Horacio (Springer, 2016)
    During the last decade the amount of scientific articles available online has substantially grown in parallel with the adoption of the Open Access publishing model. Nowadays researchers, as well as any other interested ...
  • Dafa, Lehdia Mohamed; Baudracco, Chiara; Moragas, Ana; Llor Vila, Carles; Molero Trujillo, David; Vilanova Estrada, Pere (Sociedad Española de Medicina de Familia y Comunitaria, 2017)
    Las tecnologías de la información y comunicación (TIC) están posibilitando grandes beneficios en el campo de la salud. En este sentido, KRISTINA (Knowledge-Based Information Agent with Social Competence and Human Interaction ...
  • Wanner, Leo; André, Elisabeth; Blat, Josep; Dasiopoulou, Stamatia; Farrús, Mireia; Kamateri, Eleni; Lingenfelser, Florian; Llorach, Gerard; Martínez, Oriol; Meditskos, Georgios; Mille, Simon; Minker, Wolfgang; Pragst, Louisa; Schiller, Dominik; Stam, Andries; Stellingwerff, Ludo; Sukno, Federico Mateo; Vieru, Bianca; Vrochidis, Stefanos (Springer, 2017)
    We present an intelligent embodied conversation agent with linguistic, social and emotional competence. Unlike the vast majority of the state-of-the-art conversation agents, the proposed agent is constructed around an ...
  • Oliver, Maria; Haro Ortega, Gloria; Fedorov, Vadim; Ballester, Coloma (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    This paper proposes a novel patch-based variational segmentation method that considers adaptive patches to characterize, in an affine invariant way, the local structure of each homogeneous texture region of the image and ...
  • Moreno Oliver, Verónica; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Khosronejad, Maryam (CIDUI Congrés Internacional de Docència Universitària i Innovació, 2018)
    Este trabajo presenta los resultados de un estudio cualitativo comparado realizado con alumnado de Ingeniería de la Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) Barcelona (primer curso y graduados) que tenía por objetivo conocer el ...
  • Gulati, Sankalp; Serrà Julià, Joan; Ganguli, Kaustuv Kanti; Serra, Xavier (Michigan Publishing, 2014)
    Musical melodies contain hierarchically organized events, where some events are more salient than others, acting as melodic landmarks. In Hindustani music melodies, an important landmark is the occurrence of a nyas. ...
  • Calabria, Marco; Cattaneo, Gabriele, 1984-; Marne, Paula; Hernández Pardo, Mireia; Juncadella, Montserrat; Gascón-Bayarri, Jordi; Sala, Isabel; Lleó, Alberto; Ortiz-Gil, Jordi; Ugas, Lidia; Blesa, Rafael; Reñé, Ramón; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Elsevier, 2017)
    In the context of bilingual research, little is known about the effects of neurodegenerative disorders (NDs) on the processing of two languages in a bilingual. In a recent cross-sectional study, we showed that Mild Cognitive ...
  • Calabria, Marco; Pérez Pérez, Jesús; Martínez Horta, Saúl; Horta Barba, Andrea; Carceller, Mar; Kulisevsky, Jaime; Costa, Albert, 1970- (John Benjamins Publishing, 2018)
    The present study investigated language inhibition and cross-language interference as two possible mechanisms of bilingual language control (BLC) that can be affected by Huntington’s disease (HD), a neurodegenerative disease ...
  • Goldrick, Matthew; Runnqvist, Elin; Costa, Albert, 1970- (SAGE Publications, 2014)
    It is well known that multilingual speakers’ nonnative productions are accented. Do these deviations from monolingual productions simply reflect the mislearning of nonnative sound categories, or can difficulties in processing ...
