The Deep End of Deep Learning

Very good overview of DeepLeaning 10 years history  #deeplearning #AI #digitaltransformation

  • Artificial Neural Networks are inspired by some of the “computations” that occur in human brains—real neural networks.
  • In the past 10 years, much progress has been made with Artificial Neural Networks and Deep Learning due to accelerated computer power (GPUs), Open Source coding libraries that are being leveraged, and in-the-moment debates and corroborations via social media.
  • Hugo Larochelle shares his observations of what’s been made possible with the underpinnings of Deep Learning.
  • Hugo Larochelle is a Research Scientist at Twitter and an Assistant Professor at the Université de Sherbrooke (UdeS).
  • His professional involvement includes associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI), member of the editorial board of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR) and program chair for the International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) of 2015, 2016 and 2017.

  • Davos download: global economic warming
  • The results showed that more than half the listeners attributed DeepBach-generated harmonies to Bach, while music by Bach was correctly identified by 75 percent of the listeners. “
  • The article is published in collaboration with Futurism .
  • Music is mathematical, and composers like Bach often made music that followed a defined, step-like flow that is almost algorithmic.
  • The views expressed in this article are those of the author alone and not the World Economic Forum.

Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach is known to have written many chorale cantatas, polyphonic hymns based on Lutheran texts. Each is fairly simple, featuring a single melody accompanied by three harmonies, so Gaetan Hadjeres and Francois Pachet from Sony Computer Science Laboratories in Paris thought it would be interesting to see if a machine could create chorale cantatas indistinguishable from Bach’s.

  • Music isn’t the only field where AI algorithms have performed considerably well, even outperforming actual people in some cases.

It Happened: “Daddy’s Car” Is a Song Created By Artificial Intelligence

It's happening:

  • It Happened: “Daddy’s Car” Is a Song Created By Artificial Intelligence
  • You can listen to Flow Machines track “Daddys Car” in the video above.
  • The software already serves as a useful tool for composers that could aide them in creating new music.
  • Scientists at Sonys CSL research lab unveiled a new track called “Daddys Car.”
  • The software draws from a massive database of songs to compose its music, combining small elements of many tracks to create new compositions.

Software called Flow Machines made a song called "Daddy's Car."
