Creativity meets Artificial Intelligence

Every year at the Karajan Music Tech Conference in Salzburg, experts in music technology meet with artists, scientists and representatives from business. It is about nothing less than the future of music.

What do art and mathematics have in common? Can experiences from vehicle construction also help in music – and vice versa? The participants of the Karajan Music Tech Conference in Salzburg on 12 April dealt with questions like these.

“Artificial intelligence and computer learning systems are important in all areas of society today,” explains Matthias Röder, Managing Director of the Eliette and Herbert Karajan Institutes. In music, AI can help to inspire people's creativity. In turn, one could also make use of experiences from automotive engineering – in order to make vehicles more efficient, more compact and better.

But artificial intelligence can not only inspire creativity – it can also inspire creativity. “You need creativity to further develop technology,” notes Patrick van der Smagt, Head of AI Research at Volkswagen Data:Lab Munich. And one thing should not be forgotten: “Both are made by people.”
