Artificial intelligence enriches the process of learning music

On 30 May, from 1.30pm to 2pm in the Hall of the CCCB, Rafael Ramírez will be presenting the TELMI project, in a presentation entitled “Learn to play an instrument through artificial intelligence”.

The main goal of the project is to propose another way of studying and learning musical instruments by combining interactive self-learning, augmented feedback, together with complementary systems to traditional teaching. Those attending the presentation will be able to experience the possibilities offered by artificial intelligence to enrich the music learning process. With the violin as a practical example, the researcher Rafael Ramírez will explain the most innovative breakthroughs in this line and demonstrate the various interactive technologies that may be key in the way in which we relate with instruments in the future.
