Music symposium honors Marvin Minsky

Posted today on Tod Machover’s Facebook page:

I’ll be giving a keynote on Friday at the Music, Mind and Invention symposium at the College of New Jersey. The conference is in honor of Marvin Minsky, AI pioneer and “intellectual godfather” of the MIT Media Lab, and I’ll be speaking about Marvin’s enormous influence on musical thought, smart machines, and out-of-the-box creativity.

Other invited speakers include Noam Elkies, Dmitri Tymoczko, Diana Deutsch, Eran Egozy, Gary Marcus, and Joshua Fineberg.
