MIKA: Music Knowledge Intelligence Agent
Team Members and Titles

Machine learning systems coupling symbolic- and signal-based inputs have been almost exclusively used for speech recognition MIKA extends this work to more complex signals, testing on a historical corpus of jazz.

Key Findings

Developed a software architecture where multiple machine learning components work together to algorithmically compose new chord progressions based on an analysis of historical models.
