Music and Artificial Intelligence with Dr. Eliot Handelman and Andie Sigler

Listen Now to Eliot and Andie

Is it possible that we’ll soon have AIs that can compose brilliant music and teach us what they are doing?  That is the hope and aspiration of Eliot and Andie, researchers at McGill University and points beyond, as they explore the intersection of music and AI, in our dynamic discussion of this topic today. Their ‘Jack and Jill’ AI will also be personal, something available for your future smart phone, and will know your musical interests, proclivities and moods intimately.   Enjoy!



Guests- Dr. Eliot Handelman and Andie Sigler on the Intersection of Music and Artificial Intelligence

Listen Now to Eliot and Andie on Music and AI

You’ve heard of computers that can play chess, but how about creating music, original music so good that it seems to have been created by a master?  This is one of the holy grails in creating a true musical AI as envisioned by the dynamic partnership and quest of Eliot and Andie.

They are exploring questions like, “Can an AI operate beyond the regurgitation and remembrance of musical patterns humans have already explored and discovered?” 

Trained at Princeton, Dr. Handelman sees AI as the ultimate art, because it can create an consciousness beyond any particular reference point.  A real freedom us biologicals, trapped in specific bodies and belief systems, can only dream of.. You can check out some of  their AI generated music here. 

“Art is the way we negotiate a boundary between ourselves and somebody else..
One day an AI can be an externalized social self…”
Come take a journey with us into the minds of musical AI scientists, as they dream up  new ways of thinking about intelligence that could impact us all..
