Music And Creativity

Georgia Tech's Parag Chordia believes music is a universal part of human culture, and his research shows music education can inspire greater interest in math, physics, and computer science. Chordia heads Georgia Tech's "Music Intelligence Group." With support from the National Science foundation, his goals are to program computers to understand music the way humans do naturally - anticipating what is coming next. He's also studying changes in the brains of professional musicians as they play composed music versus when they improvise.
