Zhiyao Duan, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, will develop a human computer collaborative music making system that allows humans to collaborate with machines on harmonizing pitch, coordinating musical timing, and conveying expression in music. Using signal processing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning algorithms, Zhiyao will improve current automated accompaniment systems by empowering machines with stronger music perception skills, more expressive performance, and deeper understanding of music theory and composition.
