Machine Music: Exploring Machine Learning By Generating Music Or How To Teach A Computer To Rock Out

2:00pm - 2:25pm on Saturday, October 7 in PennTop North

Gabe Levine, Jonathan Arfa

Audience Level:


Want to learn about Machine Learning and Recurrent Neural Networks? Want to also make music? Me too! This talk is a beginners’ exploration of python machine learning frameworks to build a music generating algorithm.


This talk will go through the ups and downs of a machine learning beginner trying to create a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) to implement a music generating algorithm. We will build off of Gabe’s PyGotham 2016 talk (The Sounds Of Data: and will attempt to implement an RNN based on Alex Graves’ Generating Sequences With Recurrent Neural Networks ( Gabe Levine is a musician turned software engineer, and Jonathan Arfa is a Statistics and Machine Learning enthusiast
