Technology and music have a centuries old history of coexistence: from luthiers to music information research. The emergence of machine learning for artificial intelligence in music technology has the potential to change the way music is experienced, learned, played and listened. This raises concerns related to its fair and transparent use, avoiding discrimination, designing sustainable experimental frameworks, and being aware of the biases the algorithms and datasets have. The first edition of the workshop on Designing Human-Centric MIR systems aims at bringing together people interested in discussing the ethical implications of our technologies and proposing robust ways to assess our system for discrimination, sustainability, and transparency.

We invite researchers from all disciplinary backgrounds to participate in the workshop, and submit here an extended abstract to contribute to this discussion. Details about the submission process can be found here. More information about the topics of this workshop can be found here.
