“How do I explore new music of my taste? I am not interested in what is recommended by my online music service.”

MARG?

Music and Audio Research Group or MARG at SNU is a highly interdisciplinary research group that tries to find solutions to answer these questions. And there are a greater number of intriguing problems in audio/music that still remain unsolved. As we can have thousands of songs in a portable music player or have an access to tens of millions of songs on the web with the advent of technologies, it becomes more and more difficult to search and discover music we like. Although Information Retrieval (IR) is a mature field of science, Music Information Retrieval (MIR) is just getting started, attracting more and more researchers from the diverse fields of science, including music, computer science, information science, library science, cognitive science, neuroscience, psychology, law, or electrical engineering.

So, if you love music and if you have ever wondered about the above questions and the like, you’re more than welcome to join our group!
