The AI Conference

The AI CONFERENCE from CMU INSIGHTS at The Great Escape takes place on Thursday 17th May in Dukes at Komedia.

New technologies continue to have a big impact on how music is made, consumed, curated, shared, marketed and monetised. Though that doesn’t mean every new technology is going to cause a revolution. So how do you know which new technologies are truly going to change the business of music?

The AI Conference will showcase some of the most exciting new technologies – with the focus on those that employ big data and machine learning – and consider what impact that tech is likely to have in the decade ahead, and what challenges and opportunities will be created along the way.

We will look at the latest developments in audio-recognition technology, and how that changes the way music is selected and shared, and how it is being employed to better monitor music usage online – and in the real world too – to ensure the right artists and songwriters get paid.

We will also see how new technologies are changing music marketing, allowing artists and their business partners to follow fans into the digital spaces where they prefer to hang out, and in particular the messaging apps that are now a key forum for fan conversations.

And we will investigate the creative technologies that make music. How can artists, songwriters and record producers use these new tools to take the art of music making in totally new directions? And will machines that can compose music, write lyrics and direct videos on the fly ultimately compete with music creators?

Come hear from key innovators in music and technology, and meet ten exciting start-up businesses who are leading the next chapter in the story of music tech.
