#16: Creativity, Music and AI with Valerio Velardo

In this episode, our guest is Valerio Velardo, Co-Founder and CEO of Melodrive, a company providing AI and machine learning consultancy for audio-centric and music tech startups. Valerio has a PhD in AI Music and is a classically-trained musician. He has deep experience running R&D in AI music for both academia and the industry.

Valerio is very passionate about his work, as he continues to explore what we can do with AI and machine learning in the future, however, he is also very clear about the challenges we face with data and human biases. He can see a way forward, where we work in collaboration with these technologies, which opens up new and exciting ways of making music by pushing the boundaries of human potential and creativity.

We covered quite a lot of ground and topics in this one, so we hope you will find it both interesting and insightful.
