The music industry is almost entirely digital in many ways, but sheet music has remained stubbornly stuck in the era of analog; 'BeckTabs' is a new piece of software that makes it easier for professional musicians to get with the times. The app allows musicians to store and read sheet music quickly through their mobile devices, making it a convenient way to bring musical notation anywhere.
As compared to reading out language, sheet music should be easy for computers to emit, as notation is far more rigid and straightforward. However, likely as a function of a significantly lower level of demand, music reading apps haven't gained the sophistication of language-processing software. BeckTabs helps musicians to gain the convenience of that technology, turning its AI toward reading music in a visible way.
