Is deep learning Alchemy? No! But it heavily relies on tips and tricks, a set of common wisdom that probably works for similar problems. In this talk, I’ll introduce what the audio/music research societies have discovered while playing with deep learning when it comes to audio classification and regression -- how to prepare the audio data, pre- and post-process them, how to design the networks (or which one to steal from), and what we can expect as a result.
