Hipstas Project Aims to Make Sound Recordings More Accessible

The Hipstas (High Performance Sound Technologies for Access and Scholarship) Project from the University of Texas Austin in collaboration with the Illinois Informatics Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign uses an algorithm to visualize and classify sound.

This tool was originally used to identify bird calls, and is now being used to analyze archival sound recordings and make them more usable. Check out The Chronicle of Higher Education article for more information.
