  • This event has passed.

Join us at the Decimal Lab on Sept 15th 2023, 1-3pm for a keynote and panel on the exciting and transformative synergy between Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the music industry. In this keynote, Ontario Tech University‚Äôs very own Delon Omrow (three-time Canadian Latin Grammy nominee, Top 100 Finalist for CBC’s SearchLight Competition and two-time Oshawa Music Awards winner) will speak to the unprecedented revolution in the way music is created, discovered, and enjoyed through AI. Joined by Juno-nominated producers David Neale, TJ Habibi and emerging artist Elev8, this panel will discuss how AI-driven algorithms are becoming increasingly proficient in composing music, collaborating and generating original pieces by leveraging vast amounts of musical data and sophisticated machine learning techniques. The panel will unpack how AI threatens and commodifies human creativity, challenging traditional notions of authorship, copyright, and artistic identity.

Dr. Isabel Pedersen will host and moderate a panel with Delon Omrow, Juno-nominated producer T.J. Habibi (Maestro Fresh Wes, Choclair, Saukrates) and 2023 OMA producer-of-the-year David Neale (CNN, Toronto Raptors, Toronto FC, Karl Wolf), guiding a conversation on the profound impact of AI on various aspects of music creation, production, distribution, and consumption. The panel will end with a demonstration of how AI technologies are revolutionizing the way artists connect and engage with their audiences, redefining the concert experience and enabling new forms of audience interaction.
