Just in April of this year, we got to see a painting that — to those familiar with Rembrandt — seemed reminiscent of the Dutch painter’s style. It was actually an object made by a 3D printer from cloth — and, of course, a really smart program at work.
And recently, Google announced that their Project Magenta — which is built on top of TensorFlow, Google’s AI engine — had resulted in a program creating a 90-second piece of music.
While art-by-computers isn’t new, it’s interesting that Eric Schmidt’s vision suddenly seems very real: In New York yesterday, Schmidt said Google, IBM, and Facebook are working on rather different things within AI.
While IBM seems to be focused on “complicated problem solving” and Facebook on natural language, Google “wants to build an underlying platform that allows you to do all this stuff.”
And they very well might, sooner than later. Even if the piano composition isn’t all that great.
