Automatically Detecting Members and Instrumentation of Music Bands via Web Content Mining.

Proceedings of the 5th Workshop on Adaptive Multimedia Retrieval (AMR'07)
In this paper, we present an approach to automatically detecting
music band members and instrumentation using web content mining
techniques. To this end, we combine a named entity detection method
with a rule-based linguistic text analysis approach extended by a rule filtering
step. We report on the results of different evaluation experiments
carried out on two test collections of bands covering a wide range of popularities.
The performance of the proposed approach is evaluated using
precision and recall measures. We further investigate the influence of different
query schemes for the web page retrieval, of a critical parameter
used in the rule filtering step, and of different string matching functions
which are applied to deal with inconsistent spelling of band members.
