A3E Deep Dive™ Session: "The Future Musician: The Real Impact of Artificial Intelligence"

Would you like to learn a new style of music, score a soundtrack and write a hit song—all in one afternoon? Machine learning technology is already capable of driving a car, mastering a video game overnight and even developing new languages to communicate. As time and technology progress, the process of human learning will likely evolve from traditional methods of study to instantaneous data retrieval from the cloud to the mind. A3E invites a panel of experts to explore the incredibly real subject of artificial intelligence and machine learning for music.

A3E Deep Dive™ Session: "Developing Creative Software for the Social Media Era Musician"

The days of young artists producing their music in a professional recording studio and submitting demos to record labels are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Today, free music software on computers and mobile devices is often the recording platform used to create and promote music directly on YouTube, Reverb Nation, Broadjam, and other Internet destinations. This shift in the industry means software developers are challenged to provide an intuitive creative experience for people with little or no training in audio engineering or studio production. This developer-focused session will discuss the best practices for designing software that caters to the self-taught producer, while maintaining a high standard of excellence for your brand.

A3E Deep Dive™ Session: "The Future of the Frets: Guitar for the Next Generation of Musicians"

Technology has changed the creative and social habits of young musicians in ways that even Leo Fender or Paul Bigsby could never have predicted. Mobile and desktop music apps, online lessons, gaming, cloud connectivity, MIDI and USB connection are design essentials that did not exist when pop culture’s most iconic musical instrument was developed. This A3E session explores the latest innovations and trends that will continue to inspire young guitarists in the technology era.
