Human in the loop (HITL)

Wherever possible, we recommend having a human review outputs before they are used in practice. This is especially critical in high-stakes domains, and for music publication. Humans should be aware of the limitations of the system, and have access to any information needed to verify the outputs (for example, if the application summarizes notes, a human should have easy access to the original notes to refer back).

Understand and communicate limitations

Consider whether the model is fit for your purpose, and evaluate the performance of Staccato on a wide range of potential inputs in order to identify cases where the Staccato’s performance might be likely to generate copyright materials.
