The new, compelling style created by The Beatles inspired François Pachet to investigate how music style is invented. As Director of SONY Computer Science Laboratory in Paris and composer, he led a project, Flow Machines, to research and develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems able to generate music autonomously, or in collaboration with human artists.
In this fascinating talk, Pachet takes the audience on a journey through the AI applications in the music world, to produce content that not only helps users / composers to explore new ideas, but also to find their own musical style. François Pachet is a researcher in artificial intelligence. He is particularly concerned about how AI can boost creativity in music, and other artistic domains. He has been director of Sony Computer Science Laboratory in Paris, where he led the music research team. His research on style modeling (the Flow-Machines project) led to the first AI-based generation of a mainstream music title using artificial intelligence (Daddy’s car). He is now director of a research lab at Spotify in Paris, where he designs the next generation of AI-based creation tools for artists. He is also a semi-professional musician, and composer of pop and jazz albums. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
