At the Forefront of AI and Music Innovation

Dr Martin Clancy, founder of AI:OK, is an influential figure in the convergence of artificial intelligence and music, recognised for his pioneering work in ethical AI. As the Founder Chair of the IEEE Global AI Ethics Arts Committee and author of “Artificial Intelligence and Music Ecosystem” (Routledge 2023), Martin has solidified his position as a thought leader in AI’s application to the creative industries.

AI:OK, funded by Enterprise Ireland through a commercialisation fund, collaborates with Ireland’s most extensive Data Analytics and AI Research Centre, Insight, and is spearheaded by Dublin City University (DCU). Martin’s ‘AI:OK’ project has attracted attention and support from IBM, Deezer, and UK Music, highlighting its significance in the AI and music space. Furthermore, Martin’s appointment as Social Policy Fellow at The Long Room Hub, Arts and Humanities Research Institute at Trinity College, amplifies his influence in marrying technology with the humanities.

Martin’s musical achievements include Top 20 hits on the US Billboard Dance Charts, a foundational role in Tua Nua, and collaborations with Sinead O’Connor. Managing Irish singer Jack Lukeman and being a Certified Ableton Live 12 Trainer, Martin has made substantial contributions to music production and artist development. This expertise is further recognised by Harvey Mason Jnr, CEO of the Grammys, who personally invited Martin to participate in the Recording Academy’s inaugural AI summit in June 2023, highlighting his influence in the evolving music landscape.

His expertise is globally acknowledged, with consultancy roles for Alphasights UK, Jump Associates USA, and Steinbeis Germany. His insights have been featured in CNN, The LA Times, The New York Times, Wired, TMZ, BBC, La Republica, Washington Times, Les Temps, Irish Times, RTE, Daily Mail, and more. Martin’s influence extends through keynote presentations and panels at prestigious institutions and conferences worldwide, including last year at the University of Oxford, Queen Mary London, the ADE Conference in Amsterdam, Mondo in New York, MaMA in Paris, and CEIPI (Centre for Intellectual Property Studies) in Strasbourg, Runda in Zagreb, and IMBR in Kristiansand, with upcoming presentations in 2024 at Dublin Tech Summit, WISE Conference Berlin, IMBR Conference Hanover, and SoAlive Conference Sofia.

This continued engagement with the broader music and technology community underscores Martin’s commitment to driving ethical and transformative change in the industry through AI.
