Music Deep Learning with Feynman Liang

Machine learning can be used to generate music. In the case of Feynman Liang’s research project BachBot, the machine learning model is seeded with the music of famous composer Bach. The music that BachBot creates sounds remarkably similar to Bach, although it has been generated by an algorithm, not by a human.


BachBot is a research project on computational creativity. Feynman Liang created BachBot using Python machine learning tools to build a long-short term memory model. Our conversation explores artificial intelligence, music, and his approach to this research project.
