"Can Machines Make Music And Art? If So, How? If Not, Why Not?"

Google's 'Magenta' Project Will See If AIs Can Truly Make Art (+Video)

Google research will find the limits of computer creativity

Google's next foray into the burgeoning world of artificial intelligence will be a creative one. The company has previewed a new effort to teach AI systems to generate music and art called Magenta. It'll launch officially on June 1st, but Google gave attendees at the annual Moogfest music and tech festival a preview of what's in store. As Quartz reports, Magenta comes from Google's Brain AI group -- which is responsible for many uses of AI in Google products like Translate, Photos and Inbox. It builds on previous efforts in the space, using TensorFlow -- Google's open-source library for machine learning -- to train computers to create art. The goal is to answer the questions: "Can machines make music and art? If so, how? If not, why not?"
