• Generative music in the browser
    We are extremely happy to invite you to our first Nulab Developers Tech Talks evening and even more over the top excited to host Tero Parviainen (https://twitter.com/teropa), as our first honorary guest <3 2018 is the year deep neural networks have arrived in the web browser. With technologies like TensorFlow.js we no longer need special machine learning setups in order to tap into this thriving branch of AI. Everything you need runs on any web browser. One of the exciting prospects of this development is that it brings musical AI tools into web apps. We can now take generative musical models designed and trained by people such as Google's Magenta team, and run them in the web browser. Into this we can incorporate other neural net models such as PoseNet, as well as everything else the web platform has to offer: Web Audio, Web MIDI, HTML & SVG, CSS, and WebGL. In his talk Tero will get you familiar with some of the current deep learning techniques for making music. You will see how to apply them to generate music in the web browser with TensorFlow.js, Magenta.js, and Web Audio. He will also discuss ways to combine all of this with UI and visual design, to create interactive applications that help people engage with music in new ways. You can find Tero's work over at http://teropa.info/ or at https://codepen.io/teropa/ and please trust us when we say that his talks are not to be missed. ******SCHEDULE********************************************* 18:00 - Doors open, food and drinks \o/ 18:30 - Welcome words 18:35 - Tero Parviainen - Generative music in the browser 19:00 - Open Q&A with Tero 19:30 - Drinks and socialising 20:00 - Goodbye :( *************************************************************** *!!
