Overview. In exciting theoretical and practical sessions we will apply machine learning techniques to problems related to music, and use augmented reality techniques to construct a virtual orchestra. Possible group projects include:

1. Automatic music classification through the universal distance measure
2. Learning musical taste through boosting methods
3. Learning to compose music through recurrent neural nets

4. Gesture recognition for conductor patterns
5. Sibelius Interface: simultaneous musical score and video/audio of orchestra
6. Low Latency Home Conductor: thin client (notebook with camera) operates via WWW on a network of music processors
7. Tracking the conductor's eye - only the viewed instrument reacts to gestures
