Leveraging sound and music computing technology

to enhance human health and potential


About Us

Welcome to Sound and Music Computing Lab at National University of Singapore! The NUS Sound and Music Computing Lab strives to develop Sound and Music Computing (SMC) technologies, in particular Music Information Retrieval (MIR) technologies, with an emphasis on applications in e-Learning (especially computer-assisted music and language edutainment) and e-Health (especially computer-assisted music-enhanced exercise and therapy).

We seek to harness the synergy of SMC, MIR, mobile computing, and cloud computing technologies to promote healthy lifestyles and to facilitate disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment in both developed countries and resource-poor developing countries.
