The Role of AI and Machine Learning in Creativity: I’ll discuss Magenta, a Google Brain project investigating music and art generation using deep learning and reinforcement learning.
He also helped build the infrastructure to scale Open AI’s distributed ML systems to thousands of machines.
One crucial question is: Where does AI and Machine Learning fit in the creative process?
I’ll argue that it’s about augmenting and extending the artist rather than just creating artifacts (songs, paintings, etc.) with machines. In the first, we explore the use of recurrent neural networks to extend musical phrases in different ways.
Doug leads Magenta, a Google Brain project working to generate music, video, image and text using deep learning and reinforcement learning.
A main goal of Magenta is to better understanding how AI can enable artists and musicians to express themselves in innovative new ways.
