Over the last couple of years, machine learning tools have permeated many aspects of our lives—from entertainment and sports to retail and the home. Artificial intelligence is now making strides in the creative industries as more and more artists and musicians develop an interest in technology and how they can harness it to further their careers.
Magenta is one of the open-source options in the machine learning tools category. The research project is "exploring the role of machine learning as a tool in the creative process." Launched by Google, Magenta gives access to songs written and performed by artificial intelligence. The platform is a hub for discovery and collaboration, featuring unique compositions such as "transcribing piano with a neural network" to "creating palettes for blending and exploring musical loops and scores."
