Speaker: Scott H. Hawley, Belmont University and Harmonai.org Get ready to explore the cutting-edge world of self-supervised learning in music. We'll take a look at how researchers are using this technology to transform the way we interact with music. Imagine being able to take a piece of music, automatically detect and classify it, or even create new sounds using just a computer. We'll dive into the different ways this technology is being used, take a look at the frameworks being used and explore the possibilities and limitations of working in the "latent space" of music. This talk will provide an overview of prevalent frameworks for self-supervised learning of audio representations, and demonstrate some of the challenges and capabilities that become apparent in this area. Join us at 6:00 for refreshments, food, and conversations. The presentation will start at 6:30.
