Talk at One-North Festival on Music and AI: Generating Music and More!

I'll be giving an invited talk on Music and AI: Generating Music and More!, coming Friday at the One-North Festival. The one-north Festival is an annual celebration of research, innovation, creativity and enterprise. Jointly organised by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and JTC, and supported by Science Centre Singapore, this very exciting event welcomes the public to immerse in science and technology through fun interactive displays, inspiring talks, workshops and tours for the whole family. The theme for this year’s festival is “AI and I”, to emphasise the rapid development in Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities, and how this will enhance how everyone lives, works and plays in our society. Come hear from and interact with scientists, innovators, media creators and entrepreneurs at the one-north Festival 2018!

Title: Music and AI: Generating Music and More!

When: 7 September, 5:00pm - 5:45pm
Do you have a “smart” music generation app on your phone? Intelligent music generation systems have begun to emerge, yet they still face important challenges such as capturing long-term structure and themes, and capturing emotion/tension in music. In this talk, Prof. Herremans will present some of her research that directly tackles these challenges and delve into how musical hits can be predicted by an AI system based on audio characteristics and social networking listening history.
