In MIR research, we have a wide repertoire of methods to learn about music and about how it is used, etc. Yet, how can MIR be used to help current artists to move forward - in creativity or in making a career? Are we helping artists already? Could we do better? Come discuss with session chair Christine Bauer.
Research on automatic recognition of the intended or perceived emotion/mood of a music piece has received attention for some time. But, are we getting closer to "solve" the problem? Are we taking the "right" approach to address this task? What are the main breakthroughs over the recent years, and what are the major to-do for the years to come? How can we work together to make real progress? Come discuss with session chair Yi-Hsuan Yang.
