Make Beats With Google's AI "Infinite Drum Machine"
Among the many AI music apps from Google this past year, their Infinite Drum Machine certainly tops the list. It gathers thousands of everyday sounds and transforms them into rhythmic masterpieces with its in-built sequencer.
The computer wasn’t given any descriptions or tags – only the audio. Using a technique called t-SNE, the computer placed similar sounds closer together. You can use the map to explore neighborhoods of similar sounds and even make beats using the drum sequencer.
In addition to the feat of its AI implementation, what’s really impressive to us how Google managed to compile such a variety of sounds, along with the help of the London Philharmonia.
