AWS right this moment introduced that its DeepComposer keyboard is now out there for purchase. 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 based mostly in your enter.
First announced at AWS re:Invent 2019, the keyboard created a little bit of confusion, partly as a result of Amazon’s announcement nearly made it appear to be a shopper product. DeepComposer, which additionally works with out the precise hardware keyboard, is extra of a learning tool, although, and belongs to the identical household of AWS hardware like DeepLens and DeepRacer. It’s meant to show builders about generative adversarial networks, identical to DeepLens and DeepRacer additionally deal with particular machine studying applied sciences.
Customers play a brief melody, both utilizing the hardware keyboard or an on-screen one, and the service then routinely generates a backing monitor based mostly in your alternative of musical model. The outcomes I heard at re:Invent final yr have been a bit uneven (or worse), however that will have improved by now. However this isn’t a software for creating the subsequent High 40 tune. It’s merely a studying software. I’m unsure you want the keyboard to get that studying expertise out of it, however in case you do, now you can head over to Amazon and buy it.
