Top Results in MediaEval Benchmark
Musical Turing Test
Our Basis Function Model of expressive music performance is said to have passed a "musical Turing Test" (producing a piano performance whose "humanness" as judged by listeners is undistinguishable from a human musician's [and ranking best, in this respect, among a number of algorithms]) in a recent study (E. Schubert et al., Algorithms Can Mimic Human Piano Performance, Journal of New Music Research (Jan. 2017)).
