Mark d’Inverno, Professor of Computer Science at Goldsmiths, University of London will argue that designing Music AI systems to be "autonomously creative" is not the right approach, and instead, we should be thinking of AI as something that supports, enhances and stimulates human creativity. Mark, who is also a jazz pianist, draws on history, psychology, education and philosophy to understand what we mean when we talk about creativity - and explores how our understanding of  "creativity" has profound ramifications on how we envisage AI's role in society - and in music. He'll also use new AI music systems to demonstrate how the creative experience of human musicians and audiences should be the starting point when designing Music AI.

Hybrid Music Lab is a project organized by the Berlin Music Commission - the Berlin music industry’s main network and carried out on behalf of the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises as part of the Berlin state initiative "Projekt Zukunft" and funded by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund).
