Google s machine learning program, Magenta, has created its first piece of art, which is a 90-second piano melody. The music piece is Magenta s first tangible product. The program aims at using machine learning to create compelling art and music system. Also Read - Windows 11 out now in “reliable” beta version, allows Dev Channel users to switch
Google has also published a new blog post to talk in length about the objective of the project and offerings that the tech giant s artistic venture may have in the near future. According to Google, Magenta has two goals, the first naturally being that the project advances the machine intelligence for music and art generation. Google aims to develop algorithms that can learn to understand and create music on its own.

Secondly, through Magenta, the tech company wishes to create a platform for the community or artists, coders and machine learning researchers, who can come together to give a futuristic twist to production of art.
Give the melody a listen here:
Although, it is not the first time that Google has explored machine intelligence for the artistic field. Last month, Google researchers were working on making their Artificial Intelligence engine to read erotic novel, in order to improve its communication skills. By feeding AI the novels, researchers hoped that it could learn to speak more naturally. Recently Google launched a Tilt Brush platform for HTC Vive that allows you to transform your surroundings into a digital canvas.
Further, Google is not the only company building smarter Artificial Intelligence engines. Microsoft too has been working on its own AI-based project, under which it launched an AI-based chatbot name Tray, and had asked Twitter to converse with it so that the bot could learn natural language. However, the entire experiment backfired, when Tray interacted with some hooligans on Twitter and picked up abusive language, turning it into a xenophobic bot. Microsoft has quite a few AI-based products like Fetch and Mimicker Alarm under its Project Garage initiative. Also, Facebook has already started rolling out its own AI-based Messenger bots for enterprise.
