As we have announced a few days ago, the FuturePulse platform will be exploited during this year’s Sónar+D Innovation Challenge (SIC)
! The challenge co-organized by the Music Technology Group de la Universitat Pompeu Fabra
is the platform for rethinking the future of creative technology
, based on the open collaboration between companies and talented creators
from different fields. Companies propose challenges to creators and collaborate to produce disruptive prototypes to present them at Sónar+D.
This years’ challenge, with a ‘datathon’ format, has been posed by our music analytics platform FuturePulse
. Over the past two weeks, two teams of successful applicants have been creating models and solutions for identifying early popularity trends in music (artist, songs and genres), and for predicting how trends will develop or evolve, in specific demographics or influence groups.
The teams will present their findings, live in an open online event
, on Wednesday November 18th
, at 15:00 CET
Team A: Alberto González Pulido
, Andres Ferraro
, Gema FB Martin
, Rita Geleta
, Sylvain Le Groux
Team B: Ananda Mele
, Cristian Prigoana
, Daniel Rosero
, Livia Fioretti
, Lorenzo Porcaro
You can watch the live online event on the Sónar+D website,
the Sónar+D YouTube channel or the FuturePulse website.
