Advances in machine learning technology are increasingly transforming our lives, from labeling the faces in our social streams to navigating hazards faced by self-driving vehicles. How can this same technology transform our experience as musicians? This presentation will focus on recent innovations using techniques from machine learning and music information retrieval (MIR) at iZotope. We’ll showcase several working examples of machine learning technology in iZotope products like Ozone, Neutron, and BreakTweaker—revealing how the underlying algorithms work and how we bring together technology, user interfaces, and sound design to inspire and enable creativity.
