(NB: I discuss evaluation in music information research, with particular emphasis paid to music genre recognition, music mood recognition, and autotagging. I argue that most approaches to evaluating such algorithms have no internal and external experimental validity when one wishes to measure their _capacity for recognition_. The example of the horse Clever Hans, as well as dogs doing math, suffice to illustrate this point. Algorithms can have very high classification accuracies by virtue of confounds, but current approaches to evaluation do not control for this.) Bio: Bob L. Sturm is an associate professor in the Audio Analysis Lab (http://www.create.aau.dk/audio/) at Aalborg University Copenhagen. He is currently funded by a two-year Independent Postdoc Grant from the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation. His research interests are: digital signal processing and machine learning for audio and music signals, algorithms for sparse approximation and compressive sampling, and evaluation. Bob received the B.A. degree in physics from University of Colorado, Boulder in 1998, the M.A. degree in Music, Science, and Technology, at Stanford University, in 1999, the M.S. degree in multimedia engineering in the Media Arts and Technology program at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), in 2004, and finally the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCSB, in 2007 and 2009, respectively. During 2009, Dr. Sturm was a Chateaubriand Post-doctoral Fellow at the Institut Jean Le Rond d’Alembert, Equipe Lutheries, Acoustique, Musique (LAM), at Université Pierre et Marie Curie, UPMC Paris 6.
