Music — Artificial Intelligence

wow, look at the ability for Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to learn your music rhythm and melody and play a duet on it.

Try it: Here!    How does it work: Here!

It is here based on Google’s TensorFlow Machine Learning open source software.  Check out this link about “Make Music and Art Using Machine Learning” at magenta.tensorflow.org   Then look at Learning from A.I. Duet .  Some real possibilities for expanding music and allowing software to help accompany the musician.  Yes this will not make one a better musician, but it sure helps to make more music.  The software is part of the work of the Google Brain team who work on Magenta project in collaboration with the Google Creative Lab team.

Now to take this to the next level, consider this note on

Music and Creativity

There is a big connection between Music and creativity. Music activates many areas of the brain bringing together visual, motor, hearing and emotions.  Music even lists us up to God, so it has a spiritual aspect also.

Albert Einstein — ‘If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music.

“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” —Albert Einstein,  See more great quotes at: paulsohn.org

Creativity and Music

There is a very big connection between creativity and music.  Creativity is just connecting things together.  Music connects many areas of the brain together. Playing music connects the right and left sides of the brain. I have heard that some companies have a tendency to hire engineers that also have a major in music because these type of people tend to be the most creative.

Here is a great article on this in Huffington Post and also in Quora.
