Build an AI Composer – Machine Learning for Hackers #2

I actually didn’t play anything. You just heard AI generated music. Hello World, welcome to Sirajology! In this episode, we’re going to train a neural network to compose music all by itself. Machine generated music! the technical term for this is ‘music language modeling’ and it has a long history of research behind it. Markov Models and restricted bolztman machines. Which kind of sounds like something out of half life or bioshock. Hold on babe. I’ve got to go save the world using my restricted boltzman machine. Music is how we communicate our emotions and passions and its completely based […]

Remodelling machine learning: An AI that thinks like a scientist

Modern science generates a lot of data — amounts far beyond the ability of humans to process on their own. This is why scientists often rely on computational methods such as machine learning — a type of artificial intelligence to crunch big data. In fact, it’s pretty commonplace today, and is even used in applications like Spotify and Netflix to help predict your media preferences. But there’s a problem. Traditional approaches to machine learning, such as deep learning, are focused on classification and statistical correlation. This makes them very useful for recognising and comparing patterns in things like audio or […]
