Nao Tokui is an artist and researcher based in Japan. While pursuing his Ph.D. at The University of Tokyo, he released his first music album and other singles, including a 12-inch with Nujabes, a legendary Japanese hip-hop producer. Since then, he has been exploring the potential expansion of human creativity through the use of AI. His recent works include AI DJ Project where a machine learning-based DJ plays alongside a human DJ (Nao, himself), taking turns selecting and playing songs one at a time. His works have been exhibited at the New York MoMA, Barbican Centre (London), InterCommunication Center (Tokyo), and more. He published his first book on AI and creativity in January 2021.
