Ryan Groves is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and expert in AI-driven music composition. He was the co-organizer and core jury member for this year's AI Song Contest: a musical competition for human and AI co-creation. The competition had 38 teams compete from across the world, culminating in a full day of virtual events including panels and an award ceremony in partnership with Wallifornia Music Tech.
Ryan is also the founder and CTO of Infinite Album, a music service that is using AI to generate adaptive soundtracks for Twitch game streamers. Not only does this solve the copyright strike problem for streaming content creators, but also enables them to engage with their audience by letting viewers change the music of a stream through chat commands.
