Music touches our mind and our soul. It gives us pleasures, makes us thinks, and strikes us emotionally. What could be the role of AI in music then? Can AI draw inspiration from music? Can music offer insights for humans in the way AI works? Can music help reconcile AI technology with human priorities and needs? The conversation will reflect on these questions also in the light of a European vision on ‘trustworthy AI’.
