Using a mash-up of crowdsourced, curated, and algorithmically augmented data, we study the globally perceived gender gap in the music industry. What is the link between artists’ collaboration networks and the sonic features of their work?
Music can be viewed as an emergent phenomenon in the context of complex systems. I will discuss artistic and scientific possibilities opened by this perspective and present efforts to unveil music’s underlying self-organized criticality.
Networks are everywhere, from mobile communication and business relations to proteins and epidemics. In the discussion of the greatest challenges and opportunities that humanity faces networks invariably form a central part of the discussion. Networks are everywhere, or are they? Rather it seems that humans, not just scientists but the population in general, has discovered networks as suitable metaphor that helps us deal with the increasing complexity of the works we live in. In this talk I will try to link mathematical insights with philosophical perspectives, and experiences from several recent art projects.
Being creative is an essential human nature manifested through various physical art forms including drawings, music, and literature. The computable aspects of human creativity include novelty and influence. We propose a general framework, and discuss an example from classical music. We also introduce its implications on Assisted Creativity for Humans.
Sustainable development goal consists of 17 goals and 169 targets. Some of 17 targets share the same goals, therefore synergy effect is expected between goals sharing the same targets. However, trade-off is concern among goals do not share goals. Major topic of this project is to study Kyoto's Sustainability in terms of Economy, Environment, and Culture. The study of cultural sustainability starts acquisition of manufacturing process data of artisans and bottegas in Nishijin silk fabric industry.
Multidisciplinary research necessitates mastery of at least two disciplines. Here we look beyond co-interest in co-downloads at co-occupational commitment to reveal hard to mitigate crevasses between aesthetics, science, and computation.
Bioart is currently considered as a genuine avant-garde of the art. This communication explains the biotechnological procedure of gene edition based on CRISPR and discusses the implications that its use could have in the bioartistic praxis.
Our usage of language is not solely reliant on cognition but is determined by external factors leading to its global variability. Here we show how linguistic patterns in Twitter depend on socioeconomic status, location, time, and social network.
This presentation contributes towards a shared set of opportunities and challenges by proposing the conceptual harbinger knowledgebits.
