The problem of using the computer for automated harmonic analysis  has been approached from several different directions with varied  degree of success. Techniques from artificial intelligence such as  machine learning and pattern recognition have been used. The  division of a given piece in harmonic significant segments is a  crucial problem in the area of automated harmonic analysis, although  it is still underrepresented in the literature. Also, most  algorithms ignore relevant contextual clues and little has been done  towards establishing standard benchmarks. This paper presents a  comprehensive survey of the existing literature on the subject.
