We are expecting a really exciting array of speakers and topics: Imogen Heap (GB), artist and founder of Mycelia, will give a keynote speech on the future of fair rights management thanks to blockchain. Cyborg anthropologist and author Amber Case (US) will speak about trends in wearable computing and VR. Jerry Zhang (CA), founder of Sodatone, uses Machine Learning to provide tools for A&R insight. Zach Pentel (US), Global Director Brand Strategy at Spotify, and Alain Sylvain (US), CEO of Sylvain Labs, will describe the The Language of Pop and the Power of Music Playlists to understand today´s culture.
And US author Leah Hunter will bring us up to date about augmented reality, virtual reality, holograms, projection mapping and light art in her talk Sound and Vision. 
Samuel West (SE), curator of Museum of Failure, will talk about things to learn from failure of tech, music and other products in a hilarious closing keynote.

Resonate & WARM About AI And Blockchain

The adoption of AI and blockchain tech in the music industry has been responsible for a lot of hype. But how can the music industry use blockchain and AI to its benefit? The panel AI And Blockchain Are Not Going To Save Us! will bring together speakers from ethical music co-op Resonate, and AI-powered radio monitor WARM. They will consider how these technologies can aid one another and how they might change the way music is heard, managed, and distributed.

All delegates are invited for the Resonate Reception on Wednesday, 19 September, at the end of day one of the Creative Tech strand taking place at Dips´n´Stix at the venue Schmidt Theatre.
