Defending my PhD Thesis


After 4 years full of wonderful moments I’ve finished my PhD, entitled Knowledge Extraction and Representation Learning for Music Recommendation and Classification, and supervised by Xavier Serra. Next Wednesday 29th of November 2017 I will be defending it at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The thesis board is formed by Brian Whitman, co-founder of The Echo Nest and ex-principal scientist at Spotify; Markus Schedl, professor at Johannes Kepler University of Linz, Austria; and Emilia Gómez, president of the International Society of Music Information Retrieval and professor at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Here is one piece of news (in Spanish and Catalan) about my thesis defense and my last published work on music genre classification, which recently received the best oral presentation award at ISMIR 2017 (Suzhou, China):
