The first meeting of the Artificial Intelligence and Music WG has been held in Warsaw, May 17, within the DARIAH Annual Event, featuring an introductory keynote by Lev Manovich. The Artificial Intelligence and Music WG – led by Albert Meroño-Peñuela (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) and Enrico Daga (ISDS – KMi, The Open University) – has been created to build a community of academic researchers spanning both computer science and humanities and open to industry practitioners and institutions with a deep interest in strengthening all fronts of interaction between Music and Artificial Intelligence. AIM advocate and seek for impact and outreach towards the goal of building artificial musical agents that collaborate with humans employing true musical intelligent behaviour through an organized community of practice. Thus, the goal of AIM is to connect and bring together individuals, groups, and institutions that do research and work around the different aspects of Music and AI, advocating a more cohesive Music & AI community, fostering outreach, and driving innovation in the field.
AIM is currently a DARIAH Working Group, and more community building efforts are on the works.
