OpenAI Jukebox

OpenAI Jukebox is “a neural net that generates music, including rudimentary singing, as raw audio in a variety of genres and artist styles.” Come for the audio samples, stay for the t-SNE cluster of artists and genres the model learns without supervision. In one fun application, the model is shown the first 12 seconds of a song and then tries to realistically generate the rest of the track—my favorite is Jukebox’s continuation of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep. Also check out this thoughtful critique from musician and Google Brain researcher Jesse Engel, and Janelle Shane’s thread of silly samples.
