ISMIR 2016 – Is Machine Learning Enough?

DataXu’s Vice President of Optimization, Beth Logan, will be hosting and speaking on a panel, “Is Machine Learning Enough?”, at ISMIR 2016 in New York, New York.

We live in a world unimaginable even 20 years ago. From our phones we can summon a car, book a vacation and of course access the word’s music to find just those songs we like, even songs we didn’t know we liked. Automated Machine Learning at scale enables these and thousands more applications. But in business, it’s good to know when to stop. It’s not always smart to automate that last, difficult 10% of performance. Indeed in music and other industries, humans often curate the results. Will humans always be in the loop or will the machines eventually take over? Will Machine Learning ever be enough?

The annual Conference of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval is the world’s leading research forum on processing, searching, organizing and accessing music-related data. The ISMIR Conference provides a meeting place for the discussion of MIR-related research. Its main goal is to foster the exchange of ideas across disciplines by bringing together researchers, developers, educators, librarians, students, and professional users.

ISMIR is a non-profit organization which, among other things, oversees the organization of the ISMIR Conference.
