The SOMLib Digital Library - Related Projects
A number of sub-projects are related to or form a major part of the SOMLib project, which include the following:
- parSOM: An
implementation of the self-organizing map for parallell processing, developed and tested for Dual-processor Intel Celeron, Linux;
16-processor SGI PowerChallenge 10000XL, IRIX 6.2;
64-processor SGI Origin 2000, IRIX 6.5.3.
: A growing hierarchical version of the self-organizing map, which completely adapts itself to the input space, creating a hierarchy of maps of different sizes according to the provided data.
- libViewer: a
metaphor-graphics based visualization of digital
libraries allowing users to easily recognize and intuitively interpret information available about documents.
SOMeJB: The SOM-enhanced Jukebox Music Digital Library Project
aims at creating
a browsable music archive by combining a variety of technologies from the
fields of audio processing, neural networks, and information visualization, to
create maps of music archives. It is based on the self-organizing map
(SOM), a popular unsupervised neural network, used to organize pieces of music
available as, e.g., mp3 files, according to their musical sound
characteristics, i.e. creating a kind of genre-based organization. The
resulting map of the music archive can be explored, and new, unknown
pieces of music similar to ones personal likings can be discovered.
