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.

Centre for Doctoral Training in AI and Music (AIM) & Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT) virtual visit

Remote working has limited us in many things, simultaneously it gave us the liberty of being in places without taking an aeroplane. Virtual visits became a much easier thing to organise. That allowed us to meet our peers in IRCAM’s Artificial Creative Intelligence and Data Science (ACIDS) team in Paris back in February.  This time we are delighted to “travel” to Canada and meet with Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT).

We will share our ideas and research and what our groups are working on at the moment. Each centre will have 6-7 presentations from PhD students, totalling 12-14 presentations, with a length of 3-5 minutes per presentation.

These presentations will revolve around topics such as deep learning, sound synthesis, gesture and performance analysis, artificial creativity, augmented instruments, generative music, optical music recognition, composition… and much more! See the agenda!

Date: 30th of June 2021

Time: 2-5 pm (UK time, GMT+1)
