Welcome to the 6th Knowledge Sharing Session! This week, we introduce Bob Sturm, Associate Professor at KTH, who will speak on AI-generated music in his talk titled Tunes from the AI Frontiers!
Description: I’ll talk about music; folk music in particular. Ai-generated folk tunes, to be more precise – and the Ai systems that have generated said “machine folk” (or “själlösa låtar” eller “helt skitsnack”). To be completely candid, I will perform some of my favorite tunes born of cold and lifeless statistics extracted from crowd-sourced impoverished representations of century-old living practices. There’s lots of problems here but not many answers, if I may be so blunt. Nonetheless, should be fun!
