Google’s Project Magenta has gotten a solid grip of attention for its breakthrough algorithm, offering artificial intelligence its first real chance for creative expression. Now, Flow Machines has unleashed their own artificial intelligence, and it’s quickly approaching an Asimov-ian prowess. Behold the AI’s original composition, “Daddy’s Car.”
“Daddy’s Car” takes after the vibe of The Beatles, and explores a surprisingly rich arrangement. While the track’s “originality” is debatable, it certainly can’t be too far from a human’s own methods of drawing inspiration from what they experience.
“Flow Machines software learns music styles from a huge database of songs. Then, exploiting unique combinations of style transfer, optimization and interaction techniques, it can compose in any style.”
