This recent article on slashdot called New Phone Service Promises to ID Songs talks about a phone-based service called 411-SONG. There's nothing new here, audio fingerprinting systems such as Shazam, Relatable and MusicBrainz have been doing this for a while.

The paper A Highly Robust Audio Fingerprinting System gives a good description how an audio fingerprinting system works. Update: fixed the broken PDF link


The link to <em>"A Highly Robust Audio Fingerprinting System"</em> is broken for me - which is a pity as I'm really interested in knowing how Shazam works.
