Sound Organization by Source Models in Humans and Machines

Ellis, Daniel P. W.

When extracting information from simultaneous sound sources, listeners successfully exploit many different factors spanning spatial location and source characteristics. I will argue that detailed constraints on the form of particular source signals are being employed, and that this therefore is an important direction for research into automatic sound organization systems, in applications ranging from speech separation to environmental sound classification to music understanding.
