I spent a few days last week attending the Digital Humanities Benelux (DHBenelux) 2019 Conference in Liège, Belgium. This has become a classic in the DH sphere in Europe, now running for its 6th edition and offering a distinctive, mature, and cohesive view on DH that to me was especially present this year.
From July 8 to 12, I was at the Digital Humanities Conference 2019 (DH2019) in Utrecht. This is the annual academic forum organized by the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), and being so close to home and with a huge applied topic overlap it felt as a must-go.
This is a rather comprehensive post in Medium by Alex Yu on state of the art methods for automatic music generation using Deep Learning.
Last week I attended ISMIR for the first time, in its 19th conference which happened to come back to Paris where it started. This is the major venue for researchers in Music Information Retrieval (MIR), covering a broad set of communities and backgrounds including computer science, musicology, AI, psychology, ethnography, etc.
