Douglas Eck: Transforming Technology into Art

Douglas Eck, research scientist and lead for Google Brain’s Magenta project, is teaching computers how to generate their own music, video, images, and text using neural networks and other types of machine learning. Although commonly thought of as opposing fields, art and technology have always been intertwined. Eck hopes the technology that he and the Magenta team are developing will empower artists to create in ways they never have before, and to generate entirely new frameworks of expression.
