Music Cognition
« on: July 17, 2020, 11:02:16 pm »
Music is one of the exclusive cognitive abilities of human beings, however, there are animals that do react differently to music than when they hear other types of sounds. I remember a pair of parakeets my friend asked me to care for over a weekend while he went on a road trip, where when I played music the birds would bob their heads up and down to the rhythm. There have been studies on how animals react to music.  My interest in music cognition is from my research into emotions and their chemical signaling in the brain. Here's a video of how music changes the human brain.

Brain changed by music

There are computational models of music cognition and even a CNN for music cognition. I also found a suite of tools for analyzing music that can be used by researchers of music cognition. There are also some interesting ideas and associations with music and natural phenomena like the Fibonacci series.


In all honesty I can't envision a socially intelligent AI that can't relate to music in some signaling capacity that represents grades of rewards.

Lol the alpha waves were hilarious. Its definitely a great tool for conveying emotional states. Or impressing what emotions are appropriate. Maybe it’s a form of artificial context, which can help an individual or a group with understanding the significance of a plan, or anecdote.
