LeADS Liaisons with the OpenMuse Consortium

The LIDER Lab at Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies recently joined a consortium of music industry stakeholders and researchers from 12 European countries. The OpenMuse Consortium’s goal is to fill harmful data gaps in the European music ecosystem and provide artists with much needed data-driven tools to increase their success in the streaming environment.

ESR Robert Poe and post-doctoral researcher Pelin Turan recently represented Sant’Anna at the Kick-off meeting for this exciting new European project in Bratislava, Slovakia. Robert’s background in EU artificial intelligence law and AI ethics and Pelin’s background in cultural diversity and EU copyright law proved invaluable during the many coordination meetings that took place there. Sant’Anna will head up three deliverables for the Consortium including the development of a data management plan and policy recommendations involving fair machine learning techniques and topics in cultural diversity; research areas which present opportunities for the Legality Attentive Data Scientists to offer insightful contributions in the future. Sant’Anna is looking forward to a bright and productive collaboration between the two projects where there is sufficient overlap!
