Last Sunday, Amazon’s AWS re:Invent kicked off, lasting from December 2 to December 6. On the first day of the conference, the tech giant announced Deep Composer, a keyboard powered by machine-learning tech specifically for developers.
In a blog post to introduce Amazon’s new AWS Deep Composer, Amazon’s Julien Simon wrote that the keyboard has 32 keys, 2 octaves, and is meant for developers who want to work with Generative AI, with their own models or pretrained ones.
The keyboard is expected to help developers in learning about machine learning in a way that they can have fun at the same time, create some music for example. Generative AI is the area of making creative works in AI, which means it helps you in teaching machines to create something creative through the use of generative adversarial networks (GANs).
According to the tech giant, no matter if developers are specialized in music or machine learning, they can begin to use GANs. In this Generative AI technique, a pair of different neural networks are put against each other to generate new, original digital products using sample inputs. They can use AWS DeepComposer to train as well as optimize GAM models and produce original music.
Developers are able to train machine learning models of their own or they can use models given by Amazon. Whichever way you choose, you can produce music using the model, change it with the DeepComposer console through AWS Cloud, then make your music. If you want, you also have to option to share your creation on SoundCloud once you are done.
AWS DeepComposer is the third ML teaching device Amazon has launched after the DeepLens introduce in 2017 and the DeepRacer in 2018. But keep in mind that the keyboard is just announcement, it won’t go into the market anytime soon, but the company is letting account holders sign up for the device preview once it’s ready.
