Gene Kogan: “Machine Learning In the Composer's Future Toolkit”

In this talk, Kogan reviews the evolving application of machine learning to computational and new media art, with an emphasis on audio, demonstrating how new approaches to software can augment and counterpoint the normal compositional process.

Gene Kogan is an artist and a programmer who is interested in generative systems, computer science, and software for creativity and self-expression. He is a collaborator within numerous open-source software projects, and gives workshops and lectures on topics at the intersection of code and art. Gene initiated ml4a, a free book about machine learning for artists, activists, and citizen scientists, and regularly publishes video lectures, writings, and tutorials to facilitate a greater public understanding of the subject.
