François Pachet is director of the SONY Computer Science Laboratory Paris, where he leads the music research team. Since its creation, the team developed several award winning technologies (constraint-based spatialisation, intelligent music scheduling using metadata) and systems MusicSpace, PathBuilder, Continuator for interactive music improvisation, etc.). His current goal, funded by an ERC Advanced Grant, is to build computational representations of style from text and music corpora, that can be exploited for personalized content generation. He is also an accomplished musician (guitar, composition) and has published two music albums (in jazz and pop) as composer and performer.
