ISMIR ThinkTank Workshop at New York University

August 5th, 2016

30 students in computer science, electrical engineering, and music were immersed in a full-day workshop. 30 students — across computer science, electrical engineering, and music — worked in teams of 4 to commercialize a new pair of wireless ear buds. Participants were mentored by a team of 9 industry professionals. Each sprint was a hands-on workshop targeting a role that is critical to bringing a music information retrieval or media technology product to market. Participants created the product, technology, and commercialization plans for a new pair of always-listening, wireless Internet-connected earbuds!
