Dear all,

The MusAI Research Programme, based in UCL Anthropology, is running 4 public seminars at The Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. The first seminar is on Friday January 12 at 3-5pm at the Turing Institute, British Library, 96 Euston Rd., London NW1 2DB. The 4 seminars introduce the work of the MusAI Programme, which focuses on critical and creative perspectives on the cultural implications of AI through the lens of its impact on music.
The first seminar, ‘Re-Engineering Recommendation – Prototyping Radical Interdisciplinarities’, is led by Georgina Born (UCL Anthropology), Fernando Diaz (Carnegie Mellon University) and Jenny Judge (University of Melbourne). It presents the MusAI research on re-designing AI-based recommendation systems delivering music and other cultural content, conceived as sociotechnical systems, on the basis of public interest principles. There will be lots of time for discussion and Q & A.
This event will be hybrid, as are all the seminars, and a Zoom link is available after registration. Registration is mandatory to join the seminar. Please join us in person or online!

Best wishes,

Ollie Bown
