Abdul earned his Ph.D. degree in computer science from the Capital University of Science and Technology, Islamabad. His research focuses on information systems, machine learning, frequent pattern mining, and digital libraries. In this field, he has published several good-quality papers in different international conferences and journals. In Polifonia, Dr Abdul Shahid’s role mainly focuses on mining musical patterns. He analyses large music repositories to identify musical patterns, their relationships to get interesting and implicit information.
