Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 19)


Due to the development of multimedia technology and digital transmission of signals, there is rapid growth in the amount of audio data stored on various computer sites. Consequently, the problem is to find methods allowing one to explore a huge collection of data in order to find needed information in an effective way.
