    Is there a application/database that reports the name/composer of a piece of music based on "hearing" the music? A sort of IBM Watson for music?

    I saw some software on 'Tomorrow's World' a few years ago that could cross reference a few notes with its database and tell you which song you were looking for. I'm guessing the technology is out there on the net now.What it is called though, I do not know.

    Edit: just Google 'melody recognition software' and it throws a load of stuff up.
