Discussion forum 'Art or Artificial? How AI composes'

IAI member Dr. rer. nat. Daniel Nyga was invited to a discussion forum with the title 'Art or Artificial? How AI composes' in the Haus der Wissenschaft, Bremen.

Together with Amke Block and Thorsten Plath, the plenum discussed the interesting topic of AI-music. What is the opinion of artists, the music industry and music science about it? Is it still art or is creativity a feature solely belonging to human beings? What can AI deliver in the music domain what the human can't - and the other way around? The event has been moderated by Maike Evers-Schmidt.
