Dear faculty and students,

We look forward to seeing you this Tuesday, January 26th at noon in NSH
3305 for AI lunch <http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~aiseminar/>. Gus Xia
<http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~gxia/> will give a talk titled "Interactive
Artificial Music Performers via Machine Learning."

*Abstract:* As both a computer scientist and a musician, I design
intelligent systems to understand and extend human musical expression. To
understand means to model the musical expression conveyed through acoustic,
gestural, and emotional signals. To extend means to use this understanding
to create expressive, interactive, and autonomous agents, serving both
amateur and professional musicians.  In particular, I create interactive
artificial performers that are able to perform expressively in concert with
humans by learning musicianship from rehearsal experience. This study
unifies machine learning and knowledge representation of music structure
and performance skills in an HCI framework. In this talk, I will go over
the learning techniques and present robot musicians capable of playing
collaboratively and reacting to musical nuance with facial and body
