Whether digitization, high-definition audio or seamless on-demand access, the industry has been consistently adept at embracing every new opportunity.

Join Sophie Jones, interim CEO (BPI), Sophie Goossens (Partner, Reed Smith) and Damon Minchella (musician/producer) for a discussion about the key issues and opportunities for the music industry in the era of AI. How will the industry adapt? What impact might AI have on business models? And what creative ways are artists and musicians embracing AI technology? Join the BPI at London Tech Week to find out.
