NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY

How can a computer learn to read an ancient musical score? What can methods from signal processing and natural language analysis tell us about the history of popular music? Can a computer system teach a person to better use prosody (the musical pattern of speech) in order to become a more effective public speaker?

These are some of the questions that students will investigate in our REU: Computational Methods for Understanding Music, Media, and Minds. They will explore an exciting, interdisciplinary research area that combines machine learning, audio engineering, music theory, and cognitive science. Each student will work in a team with another student and will be mentored by two or more faculty members drawn from Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Brain and Cognitive Science, the program in Digital Media Studies, and the Eastman School of Music.

 

The REU is 9 weeks long, running from May 28th to July 30, 2019.

Students accepted into the REU will receive:

  • On-campus housing
  • Meal stipend
  • A stipend of $4,500 for other expenses and to take back home
  • $540 to help pay for your travel to and from Rochester

Your experiences will include:
