Music Research Series: Rebecca Fiebrink. 20 January 2015

"Machine learning as a tool for supporting exploration, embodiment, and complexity in musical interactions"
Rebecca Fiebrink (presented by the Unit for Sound Practice Research) is a faculty member in Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London, and will talk on digital sociology, digital cultures, web science, data science-what's the difference? 

Her research focuses on a variety of projects developing new technologies to enable new forms of human expression and creativity. Much of her current research combines techniques from human-computer interaction, machine learning, and signal processing to allow people to apply machine learning more effectively to new problems, such as the design of new digital musical instruments and gestural interfaces for gaming and health. She is also involved in projects developing rich interactive technologies for digital humanities scholarship, and using digital music creation to engage youth in learning computer programming and computational thinking.

The Music Research Forum is designed to help postgraduate students advance their research and careers. The events stimulate exchange, hones skills, facilitates the creation of professional networks and helps to consolidate the department’s postgraduate community. Attendance is strongly recommended for all postgraduate students (MA, MMus and PGR) in Music but of course undergraduates, music researchers, and visitors from across the college and the community are also most welcome to these public lectures. 

Venue: RHB Cinema, Goldsmiths, Univeristy of London
Time: 5.30pm
