Machines composing music at CopyCamp

Sept. 13, 2017, 10:14 a.m.
Krzysztof Siewicz

To replace composers with computers take a musical archive and a learning algorithm. A program that implements the algorithm will create a model of a digital composer, who in turn will compose own music. How many such composers will fit into your laptop’s hard drive? Join us at CopyCamp where Nick Briz will tell us more about using machine learning in music.

Who is listening to data subject?

„Did they like it? – many artists would love to know. User data analysis may help to find an answer, as well as to predict trends while planning new album releases, concert tours, marketing strategies. Who owns this data and who is allowed to use it? Where lies the balance between interests of authors, publishers, and users’ privacy? This year at CopyCamp we will spend some time to seek answers to these questions. We especially would like to invite you to the presentation of Gloria González Fuster.
