AIM students and staff to join the Alan Turing Institute

The Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute in artificial intelligence and data science, is a project partner of the AIM CDT and three AIM PhD students and six AIM supervisors will join the Turing in Autumn 2021.

The following AIM PhD students will join the Turing as Enrichment students in 2021/22:

  • Lele Liu – Enrichment project: Cross-domain automatic music audio-to-score transcription
  • Ilaria Manco – Enrichment project: Multimodal deep learning for music information retrieval
  • Luca Marinelli – Enrichment project: Gender-coded sound: A multimodal data-driven analysis of gender encoding strategies in sound and music for advertising

The Turing’s Enrichment scheme offers students enrolled on a doctoral programme at a UK university an opportunity to boost their research project with a placement at the Turing for up to 12 months.

The following AIM supervisors have been appointed Turing Fellows in 2021/22:

Turing Fellows are scholars with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence or a related field whose research would be significantly enhanced through active involvement with the Turing network of universities and partners.

AIM chapter contribution in “Handbook of Artificial Intelligence for Music”

The “Handbook of Artificial Intelligence for Music” is now available online, with a printed version due on 3rd August. The handbook, published by Springer and edited by Eduardo Miranda, covers 34 chapters and over 1,000 pages, providing a comprehensive coverage of the latest advances in research into enabling machines to listen to and compose new music.

The AIM CDT has a contribution in the newly published handbook, through the chapter entitled “From Audio to Music Notation“, authored by Lele Liu and Emmanouil Benetos, focusing on automatic music transcription, the process of automatically converting music audio into musical notation, its challenges and opportunities for research in AI and music.
