Google’s ‘Magenta’ project will see if AIs can truly make art

That’s not an entirely new endeavor. Researchers and creatives have been generating music through technology for years. One notable name in the field is Dr. Nick Collins, a composer who uses machine learning to create songs, some of which were adapted in the making of a computer-generated musical launched earlier this year. Individuals have also created songs using publicly available recurrent neural network code, while companies like Jukedeck are already commercializing their models. How Google’s efforts in the space will differ from those that came before it is still unknown. From the brief demo at Moogfest, though, it appears Magenta will be similar to others. The most important part of the process will be training, where the AI will absorb and learn from a particular type of media — at…
