Can Artificial Intelligence replace musicians? Probably not, but they can definitely help musicians unlock their creativity. Our recent event — Sound & Music Computing for Human Health & Potential (SMC4HHP) seminar and concert — held at NUS campus on Saturday, 12 November 2022 proved just that.
This seminar & concert event is hosted by NUS Sound and Music Computing Lab (SMC Lab) as part of the module fulfillment of CS4347/CS5647 Sound and Music Computing. In the first part, Dr. Suzy Styles delivers a seminar talk on "The neural basis of creative audition: How human brains learn to generate speech and music". In the second part, SMC Lab members and CS4347/CS5647 students present a unique concert. This concert combines music and AI technology and thus has a clear educational purpose.
