Workshop 2: David De Roure, ‘Emerging scholarly practice and scholarly primitives: a case study in Music and AI’
Dr. David De Roure (Oxford University) presented his paper ‘Emerging scholarly practice and scholarly primitives: a case study in Music and AI’ at the second AEOLIAN workshop ‘Reimagining Industry / Academic / Cultural Heritage Partnerships in AI’ on Tuesday 26th October 2021.
Abstract: Our knowledge infrastructure has evolved to support digital scholarship, as we adopt new methods which realise the affordances of the digital – including computation, but also socio-technical engagement at scale. The digital musicology community has been “an early adopter”, establishing new research practices which illuminate possible futures in other fields. Today we see the music community increasingly adopting artificial intelligence techniques in both analysis and composition, and a growing symbiosis of human and machine. This talk explores what insights this might bring for our future knowledge infrastructures.
