A new parallel bat algorithm for musical note recognition

ِAnsam Nazar Younis, Fawzia Mahmood Ramo


Music is a universal language that does not require an interpreter, where feelings and sensitivities are united, regardless of the different peoples and languages, The proposed system consists of two main stages: the process of extracting important properties using the linear discrimination analysis (LDA) This step is carried out after the initial treatment process using various procedures to remove musical lines, The second stage describes the recognition process using the bat algorithm, which is one of the metaheuristic algorithms after modifying the bat algorithm to obtain better discriminating results. The proposed system was supported by parallel implementation using the (Developed Bat Algorithm DBA), which increased the speed of implementation significantly. The method was applied to 1250 different images of musical notes. The proposed system was implemented using MATLAB R2016a, Work was done on a Windows10 Processor OS (Intel ® Core TM i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50GHZ 2.70GHZ) computer.
