Currently these are the main topics being addressed at MusicStats.org:
At MusicStats.org we have a particular interest in exponential technologies due to their incredible speed of development and constant influence in societal changes. Artificial intelligence, for example, is expected by many to be the most impacting revolution to come. Brilliant minds such as Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking it may even represent a threat to humankind.
At MusicStats.org we do not aim at developing AI technologies or music from AI. Our main focus is on listeners’ perceptions towards AI produced music, its impact in society and in the value of art.
In face of ever changing micro and macro environments, individuals behaviors and perceptions are permanently being modified. And their consumption patterns also follow such changes as consequence. However, despite societal changes, peoples’ passion and involvement with music and the emotional impact caused by music seems intact across cultures.
At MusicStats.org we aim to investigate the consumption patterns, perceptions and behaviors of consumers beyond the music industry. This includes their behaviors towards consumption of tangible products and experiences, discussion of happiness and well-being, among other fascinating concepts.
Virtual Reality (VR) represents one of the most fascinating technologies that are quickly becoming highly accessible to users worldwide. With its incredible capacity to immerse users on a new virtual experience of telepresence, VR will change also the music industry. Fans will be able to watch live concerts of their favorite bands, “follow” them on tours, backstage and experience concerts and festivals from many different positions and locations during events.
At MusicStats.org we wish also investigate new immersive virtual reality experiences, the difficulties in implementing such technology across different industries and to identify new opportunities related to it.
