Mirex

In 2018, MIREX -the most important international competition of MIR (Music Information Retrieval) algorithms- recognised our music detection algorithm as the best in the field, with accuracy 10 percentage points higher than the algorithm in second place. In 2019, our first position was reestablished as we presented 2 new algorithms and they both obtained better results in comparison to the algorithm submitted in 2018.
