NeurIPS 2019 Expo Talk
Computational Creativity for Music and Gastronomy Applications
Michael Spranger (Sony)
Sony R&D has been creating novel Machine Learning tools for music creators for a long time, which has led to the first music album composed with artificial intelligence -- the ground-breaking album "Hello World". Machine learning tools for style imitation under user constraints allow music creators to capture their own style or the style of somebody else and use this to create original musical material in an interactive way. Sony R&D is applying similar principles to a new domain: gastronomy. The talk will introduce the long-standing research on Machine Learning for music production and composition. It will also discuss how Sony R&D is extending these concepts and applies them to the domain of gastronomy.
