Interacting with a Musical Learning System: The Continuator [chapter]

Francois Pachet
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The Continuator is based on a Markov model of musical styles augmented to account for efficient real time learning of musical styles and to arbitrary external bias.  ...  The Continuator system is an attempt to bridge the gap between two classes of traditionally incompatible musical systems: 1) interactive musical systems, limited in their ability to generate stylistically  ...  First we describe the heart of the system, based on a Markov model of musical styles, augmented with a hierarchy of learning functions to adapt to imprecision in musical inputs.  ...

The Effect of Interactivity with a Music Video Game on Second Language Vocabulary Recall

Jonathan DeHaan, W. Michael Reed, Katsuko Kuwada
2010 Language Learning and Technology  
We relate these findings to theories and studies of vocabulary acquisition and video game-based language learning, and then suggest implications for language teaching and learning with interactive multimedia  ...  This seems to be a result of the extraneous cognitive load induced by the interactivity of the game; the players perceived the game and its language to be significantly more difficult than the watchers  ...  Plass, Lixing (Frank) Tang, the editors, and the reviewers for their useful and insightful suggestions.  ...

Foreign Language Learning as Cognitive Training to Prevent Old Age Disorders? Protocol of a Randomized Controlled Trial of Language Training vs. Musical Training and Social Interaction in Elderly With Subjective Cognitive Decline

Saskia E Nijmeijer, Marie-José van Tol, André Aleman, Merel Keijzer
2021 Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience  
During 3 to 6 months, the language group learns English, the music group learns to play the guitar and the social group participates in social meetings where art workshops are offered.  ...  With aging comes a reduction of cognitive flexibility, which has been related to the development of late-life depression and progression of general cognitive decline.  ...  The trial includes three arms to compare language learning to other complex skill training (musical training) as well as social interaction.  ...

Proposing the Multimotive Information Systems Continuance Model (MISC) to Better Explain End-User System Evaluations and Continuance Intentions

Paul Lowry, James Gaskin, Gregory Moody
2015 Journal of the AIS  
Research Article To ensure that users want to continue using a system, information system designers must consider the influence of users' intrinsic motivations in addition to commonly studied extrinsic  ...  Our paper addresses these gaps by developing and testing a comprehensive model-the multimotive information systems continuance model (MISC)-that (1) explains more accurately and thoroughly the roles of  ...  When the system starts (whether it be an entire operating system, an application, or even a website), the user could be prompted with a choice to play, learn, or work.  ...

Continuity of the conceptual system across species

2005 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
This parallel suggests that a common architecture underlies the conceptual systems of different species, although with additional systems extending human conceptual abilities significantly.  ...  The circuit identified shows striking similarities to analogous circuits in humans that represent conceptual knowledge.  ...  Acknowledgements I am grateful to Shbana Rahman for perceiving the possibility of this article, and to Alex Martin and Kyle Simmons for helpful comments.  ...

The Continuator: Musical Interaction With Style

Fran�ois Pachet
2003 Journal of New Music Research  
We propose a system, the Continuator, that bridges the gap between two classes of traditionally incompatible musical systems: 1) interactive musical systems, limited in their ability to generate stylistically  ...  The resulting system is able to learn and generate music in any style, either in standalone mode, as continuations of musician's input, or as interactive improvisation back up.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank György Kurtag, Bernard Lubat and Alan Silva for intense and fruitful interactions with the system.  ...

The Design Process Continues [chapter]

Rikard Lindell
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The app design validity was evaluated in a field study at an electronica music festival.  ...  If programming language code is a design material, then, making a finished artefact is the shaping of material. The development process can thus continue as a design process up to version 1.0.  ...  The underlying design idea is that users will learn the meaning of the symbols from the feedback they get in interaction with the app, evoking hedonic attributes [24] of being in control.  ...

Mentorship Model "Educator-Student-Pupil" in the System of Continuing Education of Kazan Federal University

Lera Kamalova, Elvira Sabirova, V. Sadovaya
2019 ARPHA Proceedings  
In the course of our research, it was revealed that the teacher-student-student mentoring model in the system of continuous education at Kazan Federal University has three substantive blocks: the content  ...  The organization of individual mentoring, psychology and pedagogical scaffolding of the child actor, use of interactive games and technologies, subject role-playing games, use of receptions of staging,  ...  Teachers with more work experience with refuse to choose an interactive learning model when you need to be more equal with a student and an elementary school student.  ...

Recurrent Coevolutionary Latent Feature Processes for Continuous-Time Recommendation

Hanjun Dai, Yichen Wang, Rakshit Trivedi, Le Song
2016 Proceedings of the 1st Workshop on Deep Learning for Recommender Systems - DLRS 2016  
Recommender systems often use latent features to explain the behaviors of users and capture the properties of items.  ...  As users interact with different items over time, user and item features can influence each other, evolve and co-evolve over time.  ...  A user's attribute changes only when he has a new interaction with some item. For example, a user's taste for music changes only when he listens to some new or old musics.  ...

Gated recurrent units viewed through the lens of continuous time dynamical systems [article]

Ian D. Jordan, Piotr Aleksander Sokol, Il Memming Park
2019 arXiv   pre-print
As a result, it is difficult to know a priori how successful a GRU network will perform on a given task. Using a continuous time analysis, we gain intuition on the inner workings of GRU networks.  ...  Despite their incredible success in natural language, speech, and video processing, little is understood about the specific dynamics representable in a GRU network, along with the constraints these dynamics  ...  Recently, a simplification of the LSTM called the gated recurrent unit (GRU 5 ) has become popular in the machine learning community thanks to its performance in speech 21 , music 6 , video 10 , and  ...
