ArtificialIntelligence is often met with fear and suspicion ... especially when it is invited into the more 'human' areas of life, like music. AI is here, so what does machine learning mean for the modern music industry, and how could we use it to ensure it benefits artists in new and different ways? CharltonHill has over 20 years’ experience in the music and media industries in an array of roles ranging from major recording artist, studio manager, music and post-production audio supervisor, copyright consultant and actor. In 2010, Hill partnered with international music producer/composer JustinShave to co-found Uncanny Valley. Turning their focus to tech, Uncanny Valley are harnessing the power of AI to provide innovative solutions for the music industry and artists.
