The MusAI program is composed of 10 research projects, designed to be complementary, which take place over five years

Two projects (‘Sonic-Social Genre’ and ‘Interdisciplinary Interventions in the Design of Music Recommender Systems’) are radically interdisciplinary; each stages experimental collaborations between computer scientists and scholars from the social sciences and humanities with the aim of transcending current disciplinary limits and introducing novel approaches to AI.

The final project (‘Prototyping Radically Interdisciplinary Music AI Pedagogies’) translates the findings of the earlier research projects into experiments in new kinds of AI training and public outreach through music.
