Artificial Intelligence for Acoustics

22 May 2024

London South Bank University, Keyworth Centre, London

Given the recent increase in use of AI tools such as ChatGPT, there has been much speculation and interest in how AI can be harnessed as a tool across the acoustics industry. However, whilst there are many possibilities for application, there are also many questions still to be answered. This one day conference will seek to bring together experts in the field and provide a forum to present relevant research and discuss many of these questions.

UKAN+ is collaborating with the Institute of Acoustics (IoA) to bring together both communities on this important topic.
