Avant Première Talk ‘Completing Beethoven’s 10th Symphony with Ai’

Presented by The Mindshift + Telekom Deutschland

For the Beethoven year 2020, Deutsche Telekom in cooperation with The Mindshift will complete the composer's 10th Symphony with Artificial Intelligence. Creativity is one of the great mysteries of the human mind. The emergence of so-called Creative AI pushes the boundaries of human imagination and opens up new possibilities of human-computer collaboration. At the same time, it is a topic of concern to many and creates a lot of dispute around what true creativity is. The presenters will give an overview of the project and discuss its implications for musicians, technologists and the public at large.

This Avant Première Talk is held in the course of the Programme Focus "Innovation Day".
