    Accurate and flexible representations of music data are paramount to addressing MIR tasks, yet many of the existing approaches are difficult to interpret or rigid in nature. This work introduces two new song representations for structure-based retrieval methods: Surface Pattern Preservation (SuPP), a continuous song representation, and Matrix Pattern Preservation (MaPP), SuPP’s discrete counterpart. These representations come equipped with several user-defined parameters so that they are adaptable for a range of MIR tasks. Experimental results show MaPP as successful in addressing the cover song task on a set of Mazurka scores, with a mean precision of 0.965 and recall of 0.776. SuPP and MaPP also show promise in other MIR applications, such as novel-segment detection and genre classification, the latter of which demonstrates their suitability as inputs for machine learning problems

    Assessing Interprofessional Learning during a Student Placement in an Interprofessional Rehabilitation University Clinic in Primary Healthcare in a Canadian Francophone Minority Context

    Background: Interprofessional collaboration is deemed the key to quality patient care and the future for healthcare delivery models. Such a complex competency needs to be learned; as such, interprofessional education should be a key component of health professional programs. An Interprofessional Rehabilitation University Clinic was created to promote interprofessional education at the pre-licensure level. However, few resources are currently available to assess interprofessional learning; no tool (English or French) that specifically assesses interprofessional learning could be identified.Methods and Findings: A self-administered questionnaire was developed to assess interprofessional learning during a clinical placement. Using a single-group posttest-only design, this descriptive pilot project reports the results obtained with this tool for the first 15 students on placement at the Clinic. Preliminary findings suggest this tool helped demonstrate that, during placements in an interprofessional clinic, students developed some understanding of their own profession as well as of other professions. Responses showed that participants believe that interprofessional interventions are more efficient, save time, and facilitate sharing of information leading to a better comprehension of the clients’ situations. The tool suggests that students feel that an interprofessional educational experience is beneficial for clients and for themselves.Conclusions: Assessing interprofessional learning is challenging. Although the tool developed during this project is most promising, further research is warranted to increase its usefulness in assessing interprofessional learning

    Data Science and Machine Learning in Education

    The growing role of data science (DS) and machine learning (ML) in high-energy physics (HEP) is well established and pertinent given the complex detectors, large data, sets and sophisticated analyses at the heart of HEP research. Moreover, exploiting symmetries inherent in physics data have inspired physics-informed ML as a vibrant sub-field of computer science research. HEP researchers benefit greatly from materials widely available materials for use in education, training and workforce development. They are also contributing to these materials and providing software to DS/ML-related fields. Increasingly, physics departments are offering courses at the intersection of DS, ML and physics, often using curricula developed by HEP researchers and involving open software and data used in HEP. In this white paper, we explore synergies between HEP research and DS/ML education, discuss opportunities and challenges at this intersection, and propose community activities that will be mutually beneficial.Comment: Contribution to Snowmass 202

    Search for dark matter produced in association with bottom or top quarks in ‚ąös = 13 TeV pp collisions with the ATLAS detector

    A search for weakly interacting massive particle dark matter produced in association with bottom or top quarks is presented. Final states containing third-generation quarks and miss- ing transverse momentum are considered. The analysis uses 36.1 fb‚ąí1 of proton‚Äďproton collision data recorded by the ATLAS experiment at ‚ąös = 13 TeV in 2015 and 2016. No significant excess of events above the estimated backgrounds is observed. The results are in- terpreted in the framework of simplified models of spin-0 dark-matter mediators. For colour- neutral spin-0 mediators produced in association with top quarks and decaying into a pair of dark-matter particles, mediator masses below 50 GeV are excluded assuming a dark-matter candidate mass of 1 GeV and unitary couplings. For scalar and pseudoscalar mediators produced in association with bottom quarks, the search sets limits on the production cross- section of 300 times the predicted rate for mediators with masses between 10 and 50 GeV and assuming a dark-matter mass of 1 GeV and unitary coupling. Constraints on colour- charged scalar simplified models are also presented. Assuming a dark-matter particle mass of 35 GeV, mediator particles with mass below 1.1 TeV are excluded for couplings yielding a dark-matter relic density consistent with measurements
