Art+Logic’s Incubator Lab.
Our goal with this lab was to develop a working prototype of an innovative software project. For our first annual lab, we targeted the music technology and professional audio community and welcomed submissions from individuals, companies, and organizations. The selected project was created by Art+Logic’s elite team of developers and designers in close collaboration with the entrepreneur.
The selected project received:
- A working prototype created by Art+Logic, valued at over $50k.
- Ongoing support during the capital raising process.
- An oppportunity to have the full-featured version of their concept built by Art+Logic.
- Access to Art+Logic strategists to refine their concept and marketing strategy.
- A progress report shared at the A3E Summit at Summer NAMM in Nashville in June 2018.
Art+Logic announces the winner of our first annual software Incubator Lab:
Scott Hawley, PhD., Associate Professor of Physics at Belmont University in Nashville.
Dr. Hawley submitted a machine-learning based app that uses neural networks and Deep Learning to allow producers and composers to train their own systems to help classify, organize, and query their datasets of samples and loops. This project will allow musicians and producers the ability to train their own systems to to use their own tags and criteria.
“I’m honored and excited to have the opportunity to work with Art+Logic,” says Dr. Hawley. “They’re a company that combines high competence with an ease of working together. Together, we’re partnering to put the training of ‘artificially intelligent’ audio processing into the hands of individual composers and producers. Art+Logic have become the key to making my idea a reality!”
The idea for this project began in Nashville’s ASPIRE Research Co-op, a gathering dedicated to ‘bringing our innovative audio ideas to life.’
