ACS Tech Talk: Rage with Machines

Sound, music, AI and machine learning

“I know better than most people what it’s like to compete against a machine. Instead of raging against them, it’s better if we’re all on the same side.” – Garry Kasparov, Russian Chess Grandmaster.

How do we get machines to listen to music and truly compose the way that humans do?

Machine listening involves software that can use sound to locate people moving through rooms, monitor machinery for impending breakdowns, or even listen and analyse the emotion embodied in a song. Is it possible to trick the brain into believing it’s feeling music and sound in the way that the human body would respond? Or what if you can create music just by thinking it?

In this intriguing, funny and often loud presentation, music tech industry disruptors, Justin Shave and Charlton Hill, provide an overview of the current AI music and sound landscape and a roadmap for audio technology enhanced creativity.
