A few days ago, I wrote a bit about some work integrating compressive sampling with sparse representation classification for the problem of music genre recognition. The high accuracy that work reports first tipped me off that something wasn’t right. Several other observations followed. Now that I have finished reproducing the system as described by Chang et al., and finished running my experiments, I am convinced all their results are false, and to a degree that I find rather disturbing for published research. Yes, I am claiming their results are fabricated.
