Artificial Intelligence continues to advance, but are we really as far along as we think? Cambridge AI researcher Dr. Sean Holden uses music as a way to explore the capabilities of artificial and human intelligence.
Sean Holden is Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Cambridge University, where he teaches and researches Artificial Intelligence, specializing in machine learning and its applications in the biosciences. Additionally, he is Director of Studies in Computer Science at Trinity College Cambridge, and Advisor to the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Existential Risk. He is also a multi-instrumentalist and singer, having playing drums since the age of nine and picked up the bouzouki, guitar, Irish whistle and many other instruments since. He has performed on numerous critically-acclaimed recordings with the bands Underground Zerø and Cruel Folk. He was recently surprised to find he has an Erdös-Bacon-Sabbath number of 12.
