How is AI technology influencing the future of electronic musical instruments? We propose an informative panel discussion to explore this critical question. Inventing new musical instruments is a highly multidisciplinary endeavor bringing together skills in music, sound design, audio engineering, HCI, digital fabrication, and software design.

Our panel will bring together diverse expert profiles to explore AI's multifaceted impact on their respective disciplines and its role in diversifying electronic musical instrument design. Key topics will cover how AI influences personalized instrument creation, transforms sound synthesis, and evolves interactive musical systems.

Special emphasis will be given to the potential of AI to replace vs. enhance human skills and the possibilities for experts to work together with machines to improve their musical and creative outcomes. In this context, the discussion will delve into the democratic potential of AI in music, making electronic instruments more accessible to a broader audience, irrespective of their musical skills.

This panel discussion aims to foster a comprehensive, interdisciplinary discourse on AI's transformative influence, promoting a fusion of creativity, science, and technology in designing future electronic musical instruments.
