MUSAiC Festival 2022

November 22-24 Stockholm

A series of lectures and concerts devoted to the themes of the MUSAiC Project and beyond! How can one judge applications of artificial intelligence (AI) to music along dimensions of utility, impact, and ethics? How do creative AI systems affect the use and worth of music in particular contexts? How can ethical considerations be folded into the engineering and application of these kinds of systems? Should there be “laws of AI” that make explicit the responsibility of the AI technologist to the domains where the technology is to be applied? What creative possibilities are hindered or facilitated by the “flaws” of an AI system’s knowledge of music?

This event is organized by Bob L. T. Sturm (KTH) in collaboration with KMH and Fylkingen, with funding provided by:
