I have student who is attempting an independent study next year in audio processing. Her goals involve detecting the meter of a song. Thus could be done through machine learning, or through other forms of AI.
While she will eventually be creating a science fair project, she has asked for advice on what to study over the summer in order to make the most of next year. I have no experience in this realm. I know that she had not yet taken AP Statistics, but I also don't know how much statistical knowledge is really necessary.
As some context, she is a rising high school junior who has already taken AP Computer Science, and a course on C and Assembly Programming.
Can anyone advise on how I can guide her?
