AWS immediately introduced that its DeepComposer keyboard is now obtainable for buy. And no, DeepComposer isn’t a mechanical keyboard for hackers however a small MIDI keyboard for working with the AWS DeepComposer service that makes use of AI to create songs primarily based in your enter.
First introduced at AWS re:Invent 2019, the keyboard created a little bit of confusion, partially as a result of Amazon’s announcement virtually made it appear to be a client product. DeepComposer, which additionally works with out the precise keyboard, is extra of a studying instrument, although, and belongs to the identical household of AWS like DeepLens and DeepRacer. It’s meant to show builders about generative adversarial networks, similar to DeepLens and DeepRacer additionally give attention to particular machine studying applied sciences.
Users play a brief melody, both utilizing the keyboard or an on-screen one, and the service then robotically generates a backing monitor primarily based in your selection of musical fashion. The outcomes I heard at re:Invent final 12 months have been a bit uneven (or worse), however that will have improved by now. But this isn’t a instrument for creating the following Top 40 track. It’s merely a studying instrument. I’m undecided you want the keyboard to get that studying expertise out of it, however should you do, you can now head over to Amazon and buy it.
