This is a rather intense 3 week long workshop investigating different projects at the intersection of neurophysiology, engineering and biology. It&rsquo;s a lot of fun. (And the reason for more all-nighters than any other part of my career.)<br /> <br /> This year the audio group looked at the connections between the auditory, motor and visual systems, using computer vision and brain decoding. Within this broad effort the work divided into two sub projects: violin and decoding. <br /><div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/malcolm-slaney-connecting-auditory-visual-and-motor-signals" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sat, 14 Jan 2023 01:44:44 +0000 malcolm 6475 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Quarantine Sessions #109 https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/quarantine-sessions-109 <div class="field field-type-date field-field-event-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Sun, 01/15/2023 - <span class="date-display-start">1:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">2:00pm</span></span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Location:&nbsp;</div> <a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/live">CCRMA LIVE</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-type"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Event Type:&nbsp;</div> Concert </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="200" height="73" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/cobasica/quarantine_sessions_-_the_core_5.jpg?1670779320" /> </div> </div> </div> <div>A Distributed Electroacoustic Network Improvisation | <a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/live">Livestream</a></div><div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/quarantine-sessions-109" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 15 Jan 2023 05:18:28 +0000 cobasica 6476 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Singing Voice Synthesis: towards the State of the Art | Dreamtonics Inc. from Tokyo, Japan https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/singing-voice-synthesis-towards-state-of-art-dreamtonics-inc-tokyo-japan <div class="field field-type-date field-field-event-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 01/11/2023 - <span class="date-display-start">5:30pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">7:00pm</span></span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Location:&nbsp;</div> CCRMA Classroom [Knoll 217] </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-type"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Event Type:&nbsp;</div> Guest Colloquium </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="200" height="113" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/shicheng/logo_protrait.png?1673218912" /> </div> </div> </div> Abstract: <br /> Synthesizing realistic singing voice has been the wildest dream for many music producers. Thanks to recent advances in deep learning this is finally becoming a reality, reshaping the way we think of and work with musics. In this presentation Kanru Hua, founder and chief researcher at Dreamtonics introduces to you practical applications of singing voice synthesis, followed by an in-depth exploration through the research that lead to this advancement, and an examination of challenges met in conditional generative modeling for complex distributions.<br /> <br /> Bio:<div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/singing-voice-synthesis-towards-state-of-art-dreamtonics-inc-tokyo-japan" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 08 Jan 2023 23:08:09 +0000 shicheng 6465 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Victoria Shen: Latent Memories https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/victoria-shen-latent-memories <div class="field field-type-date field-field-event-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-start">Mon, 01/09/2023 (All day)</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">Sun, 04/02/2023 (All day)</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Location:&nbsp;</div> CCRMA WAVE (Lobby) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-type"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Event Type:&nbsp;</div> Other </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="200" height="113" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/cobasica/victoria_shen_-_latent_memories.jpg?1673298565" /> </div> </div> </div> CCRMA WAVE (Wall for AudioVisual Expression) presents&nbsp;<em><strong>Latent Memories</strong></em><strong>&nbsp;</strong>by <strong><a href="https://evicshen.com">Victoria Shen</a></strong>.<br /> <br /> <div>The exhibition will run between&nbsp;<strong>January 9 - April 2</strong>&nbsp;in the CCRMA Lobby.

Adaptive filters typically operate via specialized online, iterative optimization methods such as least-mean squares or recursive least squares and aim to process signals in unknown or nonstationary environments. Such algorithms, however, can be slow and laborious to develop, require domain expertise to create, and necessitate mathematical insight for improvement.<div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/meta-af-meta-learning-adaptive-filters" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 01 Sep 2022 21:18:39 +0000 jos 6389 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu
