Talk by Luca Turchet (Queen Mary UoL)

Mixed Reality Lab Meeting Space
Friday 14th December 2018 (12:00-13:00)

Luca Turchet from the Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) at QMUL will give a talk to the lab on the Internet of Musical Things.

Towards the Internet of Musical Things

This talk will present a vision for the Internet of Musical Things, an emerging research area consisting of the extension of the Internet of Things paradigm to the musical domain. This field is positioned at the confluence of music technology, the Internet of Things, human-computer interaction, and artificial intelligence, and relates to the networks of computing devices embedded in physical objects (Musical Things) dedicated to the production and/or reception of musical content. Internet of Musical Things ecosystems gather interoperable devices and services that connect various stakeholders (such as performers, audience members, studio producers, music teachers) to support novel kinds of musical interactions. Two novel classes of Musical Things, Smart Instruments and Musical Haptic Wearables, will be presented along with examples of their applications.
