Magenta Is Google’s Attempt to Redefine Art With Artificial Intelligence

No machine intelligence has ever created something that looks like real, original art. Enter Magenta, the project launched today that will teach an algorithm how to create something new, beautiful, and human. Developed by the Google Brain team, Magenta is at its most basic trying to create algorithms that can make art. And not just recapitulate old art, but original works. Alongside the new tools it’s trying to build, Google wants to build collaborations with artists and coders around these algorithms to create something new. Exactly how Magenta is going to do this is still unclear, but it will involve some iteration of the algorithms used in speech recognition, translation, and image recognition says Douglas Eck, a researcher with the Google Brain team. These algorithms use a process called deep…
