London, United Kingdom, 18th July 2022—Groundbreaking AI music composition tool DAACI has won a grant of over a quarter of a million pounds from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency.

Innovate UK’s assessors returned exceptional feedback on DAACI’s proposal, stating, “The proposal contributes to the UK's position as a leader in music, based on highly innovative technology to create original music, adaptive to a wide range of consumer preferences. This is an impressive team showing practical plans to deliver the project and credibility to commercialise successfully with associated societal benefits.”

They went on to say, “This is an ideal team positioned to deliver the project successfully with their combination of relevant skills and track record, and to exploit commercially.”
