“Artificial Intelligence and Music” by Yucong Jiang Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at Indiana University Bloomington.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has achieved impressive results in many tasks: face recognition, speech recognition, machine translation, self-driving cars, and so on. In recent years, a research area called “AI and music” has also been growing. It is an interdisciplinary field connecting music and technology. I will introduce this with some cool applications, and then talk about some common techniques and challenges in this field, including discussing my research on Automatic Piano Score-following. Along the way, I’ll share my experience of being a graduate student at Indiana University Bloomington, and my two internships at Google.
Yucong Jiang is a Ph.D. candidate in computer science at Indiana University Bloomington. Her research interests include artificial intelligence, music informatics, and machine learning. Before coming to the US for her Ph.D., she earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. Meanwhile she started to take piano lessons in 2013, and held her first recital in 2018.
