AI and the Future of Musical Creativity

We live in an age where it is getting increasingly difficult to differentiate AI-generated music from that generated by humans. Does this mean these machines are creative? What does it mean for a human to be creative? How can musicians leverage these new technologies for creative purposes? Can musicians learn from AI-generated music? Can AI researchers learn from the human creative process?
We bring together experts in the field of neurology, psychology, cognitive science, music performance, and artificial intelligence to explore these questions.
