Robot Uses Deep Learning and Big Data to Write and Play its Own Music

Using #ai + #bigdata this #robot from @GeorgiaTech can write and play its own music

  • “Once Shimon learns the four measures we provide, it creates its own sequence of concepts and composes its own piece,” said Bretan, who will receive his doctorate in music technology this summer at Georgia Tech.
  • “Shimon’s compositions represent how music sounds and looks when a robot uses deep neural networks to learn everything it knows about music from millions of human-made segments.”
  • Bretan says this is the first time a robot has used deep learning to create music.
  • Shimon was created by Bretan’s advisor, Gil Weinberg, director of Georgia Tech’s Center for Music Technology.
  • In the first piece, Bretan fed Shimon a melody comprised of eighth notes.

Shimon, a four-armed, marimba playing robot, is writing and playing its own music using deep learning. This is the first of its two songs.

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.
