|Abstract||In this paper we present a focused audio crawler that mines audio weblogs (MP3 blogs). |
This source of semi-structured information contains links to audio files, plus some textual information that is referring to the media file. A retrieval system -that exploits the mined data- fetches relevant audio files related to user's text query. Based on these results, the user can navigate and discover new music by means of content-based audio similarity.
