A Human-Data Interaction workshop on Music and AI

September 20, 2019 @ 14:00 - 19:00

Will AI generated music one day replace human composed music? Can machine learning help us model listening habits or instrumentalist gesture? Can deep learning model musical style or create novel forms of sound synthesis?

We seek to separate the fantasy from reality, and identify realistic research challenges in the midst of all the hype by organising a half day event at Somerset House. On Friday September 20, 2019, from 2:00pm-6:00pm, we will organise a workshop on Music and Artificial Intelligence. It takes place as part of a UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) funded research network, HDI Human-Data Interaction: Legibility, Agency, Negotiability.

The event will bring together leading researchers, musicians, and social commentators to discuss concrete challenges and opportunities that technologies of information processing bring to music and the creative industries.

The discussions will help to shape a subsequent Call for Proposals to fund projects that will put academics into partnership with artists and industry to create new systems and critical studies that look at the deployment of AI and machine learning technologies in creative acts of music making, performing, and listening.

The workshop is organised by Prof Atau Tanaka of the Embodied Audiovisual Interaction (EAVI) unit at Goldsmiths in collaboration with Music Hackspace.

The venue is located on the ground floor of Somerset House and is fully wheelchair accessible with an accessible toilet. If you have any other access requirements, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.

If you have any questions about this event or any of our workshops please contact workshops@musichackspace.org.
