DESCRIPTION: Dr. Bryan Duggan, DIT School of Computing will discuss Tunepal, winner of the DIT Best Invention 2010 and the world's leading search engine for traditional Irish music. Tunepal enables musicians to search over 17,000 scores by playing a phrase of music on a traditional instrument such as flute or accordion. Having originally emerged from Bryan's PhD research, it is now available online and as mobile apps for iPhone and Android devices. By tracking its use Bryan shows in this talk how Irish music has become a global cultural phenomenon.
