Keynote: Masataka Goto

12:00-13:00 on Thursday, 5th September

P350 Lecture Theatre, Parkside

In this keynote I will present intelligent music interfaces demonstrating how end users can benefit from automatic analysis of music signals (automatic music-understanding technologies) based on signal processing and/or machine learning. I will also introduce our recent challenge of deploying research-level music interfaces as public web services and platforms that enrich music experiences. They can analyze and visualize music content on the web, enable music-synchronized control of computer-graphics animation and robots, and provide an audience of hundreds with a bring-your-own- device experience of music-synchronized animations on smartphones. In the future, further advances in music signal analysis and music interfaces based on it will make interaction between people and music more active and enriching.
