The Great Escape 2018

With May now appearing on the horizon, today we publish full agendas for each of the full-day conferences CMU Insights will present at The Great Escape in Brighton this May. We’ve also confirmed five of the companies which will showcase their technologies as part of The AI Conference.

CMU Insights presents three full-day conferences as part of the TGE:CONVENTION. Unlike other music industry events, these conferences present a whole day of discussions around one aspect of the music business, allowing delegates to dig much deeper and better understand the challenges and opportunities out there. Each conference combines talks, case studies, interviews and panel discussions, plus training elements from the CMU Insights seminars and masterclasses.

This year’s conferences are The Education Conference on 16 May, The AI Conference on 17 May and The China Conference on 18 May. Full agendas for each are now available online by following the respective links. Initial speakers were announced last month, and more will be added in early March.

Meanwhile, today we also reveal five of the innovative companies which will be taking part in The AI Conference: WARM, POP, Jukedeck, Rotor and Ents24.

As part of our focus on audio-recognition technology, we’ll meet WARM, which tracks the music being played on 25,000 radio stations, making radio monitoring more affordable for independent artists and labels. Then we’ll put the spotlight on automated messaging platforms like POP, which is helping artists, labels and festivals take the fan conversation onto Facebook Messenger, where fans increasingly want to engage.

The final session of The AI Conference will look at automated creation tools. That includes Jukedeck, an AI system that composes and produces original music. And Rotor, which aims to simplify the video creation process by enabling musicians, labels and services to create promotional video content in minutes.

And finally, what about the live space? That will part of the conversation too. We’ll find out how live entertainment guide Ents24 has been busy building tools that utilise years of historical user data to recommend shows and events, including a ‘smart gift finder’.

To get into all three of the CMU Insights conferences, you should get yourself a TGE delegates pass, that also gets you into the convention’s conversations and networking programmes, as well as priority access into the TGE festival venues.

Premium subscribers of CMU can also access this CMU Trends article which explains the background to each of the three conferences. Additional CMU Trends pieces accompanying this year’s CMU@TGE programme will appear in the coming months.
