Magenta (music and art generation with machine intelligence)

A research project devoted to develop deep learning and reinforcement learning algorithms for creating art and music

Magenta is a research project analyzing the function of machine learning in creating art and music.

Magenta focuses on developing new deep learning and reinforcement learning algorithms for generating songs, images, drawings and other materials. It also constructs smart tools and interfaces allowing artists and musicians to extend their processes using these models.

The started in 2016 by researchers and engineers from the Google Brain team. It is led by Doug Eck, a research scientist. They use TensorFlow and release their models and tools in open source on GitHub.
