Welcome to Magenta!

#artificialintelligence

We're happy to announce Magenta, a project from the Google Brain team that asks: Can we use machine learning to create compelling art and music? Soon we'll begin accepting code contributions from the community at large. If you'd like to keep up on Magenta as it grows, you can follow us on our GitHub and join our discussion group. First, it's a research project to advance the state of the art in machine intelligence for music and art generation. Machine learning has already been used extensively to understand content, as in speech recognition or translation.

Google's AI art project tickles the ivories in its debut

#artificialintelligence

The Web giant on Wednesday unveiled a 90-second piano melody (mp3), the first piece of art created by machine learning as part of Project Magenta. The project, announced last week at Moogfest, is an artificial intelligence effort to create original music and visual art. Along with creating music and art, another goal of the project is to build a community of artists, coders and machine learning researchers, Douglas Eck, a research scientist working on Project Magenta, wrote in a blog post Wednesday explaining more about the team's ambitions. Eck wrote that the team wants to open-source the infrastructure, beginning with audio and video support. One of the greatest challenges of the project is not only creating art but also telling a compelling story, Eck wrote.


Google's Magenta Explores AI's Music-Writing Abilities - Enterprise Software on CIO Today

#artificialintelligence

Google research scientist Douglas Eck announced the public launch of Magenta yesterday in a post on the TensorFlow Web site. Developed by the Google Brain Team, TensorFlow is the company's open source software library for machine intelligence. An MP3 sample of Magenta's song-writing ability demonstrates a simple piano melody that, while not exactly hummable, clearly has structure and themes. It also illustrates one of the biggest challenges facing researchers trying to get machines to create art: how to teach AI to tell stories that humans will find compelling. "So much machine-generated music and art is good in small chunks, but lacks any sort of long-term narrative arc," Eck wrote in his post.
