Abstract : We present the first implementation of a new framework for sound and music computing, which allows humans to explore musical environments by communicating feedback to an artificial agent. It is based on an interactive reinforcement learning workflow, which enables agents to incrementally learn how to act on an environment by balancing exploitation of human feedback knowledge and exploration of new musical content. In a controlled experiment , participants successfully interacted with these agents to reach a sonic goal in two cases of different complexities. Subjective evaluations suggest that the exploration path taken by agents, rather than the fact of reaching a goal, may be critical to how agents are perceived as collaborative. We discuss such quantitative and qualitative results and identify future research directions toward deploying our "co-exploration" approach in real-world contexts.
