  1. If AI will eventually create music better than us, whats our role in this space? To merge with it. See

  2. Very cool and interesting. As a musician i also wonder what is the future roles of musicians? Will they be relevant? I guess computer programmers will understand once computers start programming themselves and leave all the programmers in the dust as well. It's not really a question of should or should not, because if something can be done it will, and we're going there. The question really is how are humans going to redefine their role in the context of AI? Augmentation will be great for a while, but then i wonder how long it will be before we're just trying to figure out what AI is even doing anymore? It will be akin to studying biology or something. Just things to think about. Great vid thanks for sharing!

  3. I liked the way you explained the Markov Chain, I hope you continu with these amazing videos, always learning from you :).

  4. sir i have train dataset divided into 6 parts.
    each chunk have 1-128 folders and they are labels like we have in dogs cats train set.
    train0 = [1,2,…….128] 128 folders
    train1 = [1,2,…….128] 128 folders
    train2 = [1,2,…….128] 128 folders
    train3 = [1,2,…….128] 128 folders
    train4 = [1,2,…….128] 128 folders
    train5 = [1,2,…….128] 128 folders

    each 1-128 folders have their own images. now i want to merge all these files so that all 6 chunks of 1-128 folders are moved/copied to one single folder and contain all images.

    please help sir.

  5. Please all check out my music generator's output at
    Feedback is appreciated!

  6. Sorry to say this but all of that sounded really fu*king awful. Like, I'm going to puke from those sounds awful.

  7. Really appreciate these videos Siraj, really helps to open the eyes of future developers and engineers looking to push the field

  8. As an electronic musician I'm often confronted with the accusation
    "Isn't making music with a computer just pushing a button and the computer makes all the stuff?"
    "What? No! If I choose to, I still can play all the melodies, chord progressions or beats with my keyboard, pad controller or something else to record it. But even if I don't, I still have to compose and arrange everything myself."

    Well, I think the time where people just have to believe me that I'm still composing myself is over now.

  9. I like neraly everything about deep learning, but I think it should only do the stuff we don't actually want to do ourselves.
    Would it make any sense to build robots that go on vacation for us so we can spend more time at work? No, of course not. It should be the other way around.
    And people make music because it's fun, not because it's one of those jobs that just has to be done.

  10. check out for our Deep Learning final project on music generation. We explore many different types of models including LSTM, GAN, WGAN, SeqGAN, Pix2Pix, VAE, and some novel approaches. We also have a special human in the loop model that uses arm movements as a conditioner on a CGAN.

  11. Why would any one want to go to a concert to see a computer play? Maybe you nerds should actually go live life than trying so hard to emulate it…. 🤦‍♂️

  12. This is awesome
    I tweaked something similar and it is open source, so have a look –
    I'd sure be adding more databases and would be creating this slider thingy too. Awesome concept. 😁

  13. I love A.I and am devoting everything to it. After working in this field for a decent amount of time, I accept that A.I can cause the "dystopian" future. However, instead of complaining, we should work on this problem. A. I is the way forward so we should work to make it safer for humanity.

    My suggestion is to add a restriction(code) to A.I to become precise enough that it can think in the "bad" way.

    Specifically, if the A.I becomes precise to a specific percent(let's say more than humans to a specific extent), the update of gradients should be stopped(adding a break statement in the loop).

  14. The history of music and computation is surprisingly intertwined in many ways. Any composition is essentially a program. Ada Lovelace first started thinking about using the difference engine as a general computer when she wondered if the calculator could be used to make music. You could also even argue that some of the first programmable machines were organs, where different combinations of stops change the timbre of the sound. Also many folk songs and the like have an algorithmic nature, e.g. songs that follow a formula but take different input seeds that change the lyrics, or a song like '12 days of Christmas' which is essentially an O(n^2) algorithm, with n being the number of days of christmas. All very fundamental stuff to both fields. As a musician, I think we should embrace and incorporate AI-compositions. I hardly believe they will put musicians out of their jobs. We should simply see these AIs as other composers and musicians.

  15. Siraj Raval very nice, but the problem with AI is that you can never program consciousness, not even the best programmer, only god knows how to do it… for now..

  16. Excellent! Could you make a video on how to prepare for the interview process for Machine Learning Engineer?

  17. I wonder when you know so much what is that thing which stops you transitioning from a teacher to a creator??

  18. Nsynth From Magenta is quite a big deal. RNN models its using . Also Infinite Drum Machine from Google,it uses t-SNE model. Sorry i didnt scan the whole video, i might be repeating something you talked about

  19. Heyy,Siraj how can we use AI for making a realtime voice dubbing system in films?A system in which an actor in scene can provide different language option to user..

  20. The music those websites make has no melody or structure. If you want to listen to music generated that has these check out my program's output:

  21. Hey everyone, I am a 17 year old film scorer/ violinist from Berlin. I can't wait to get my hands onto Tensorflow, Magenta and NSynth. Any secret/ cool blogs you recommend I check out considering I know quite a bit of the theory of how they work but have never programmed my own. Any help appreciated!

  22. Silly, the AI doesn't "know" anything. Just like it doesn't "know" how to translate languages. It's stolen from musicians (and translators) and pattern matches on the input. So when you generate the music, will you pay the musicians you stole from?

  23. Perfect! I was fed up with stupid examples about ML and finally, I came across someone who KNOWS what he's talking about.

  24. I would like to bring some interesting input for AI music composing. Some people may see some color or feel some smell when they hear some musical note. Thanks to the study on synesthesia ( and study on brain stroke recovery, scientist has found out that the sensing area in our brain could probably overlap each other in sensing the color, sound, and smell. In an ordinary person, these 3 different senses are separated individually. Thanks to AI, we probably may have the chance to combine them together again. This may bring originality of a creativity and innovation even more meaningful, and may bring the music composition to another level. For example, by defining each music note with number or color, and let AI to read pictures(or just colors), and then to create music melody based on pictures(or video).

  25. hello i'm a musician, composer and i am interested in ai composed music, as well as my fellow com panions that have graduated berklee, how can i start making a ai composer? im interested in devotin my time and effor into building a supreme music compossition giant that will make music for movies. how can we that are willing get into this?

  26. I am a 13 years old trying to learn all this stuffs… Quantum computers, quantum algorithms and AI…. Anyone too?

  27. We’re all just ‘robots’ in the end I suppose, programmed by Nature.

    Seems quite evident to me anyways.

  28. Have you ever considered the power of merging this technology with 'Super Collider'?
