Matthew Daneman of the Democrat and Chronicle writes about Mitsunori Ogihara’s software that will “‘listen’ to songs and categorize them into specific genres and by emotional content.” 

“The software categorizes musical genres and emotional content by analyzing signals and patterns in songs. The ultimate goal, Ogihara said, is to create personalized software that recognizes signals and learns its owner’s musical tastes. “You have only to tell the software, `This is what I think of as jazz; this is what I think of as rock,’ “ he said.”

Hopefully, it will be specific enough so that other methods (possibly even better ones) can be still implemented without being sued.
