Abstract: How far can we take democratization of data and AI? As an eccentric progression of my quest to answer this question, I currently work at Qosmo, Inc. whose mission is to advance human creativity with AI. In this talk I will talk about AI for music. In recent years, there has been some remarkable progresses in AI for music and I will cover these developments in summary of the recent white paper I published. It may not be a surprise to find out that musicians are not the most technical users. We therefore released Neutone, an AI audio plugin & community, in the aim of bridging the gap between AI research and musical creativity.
