(CelebrityAccess) – Facebook AI Research (FAIR) scientists have unveiled what they are calling a universal music translation network. The technology, which makes FAIR the first AI research team to create an unsupervised learning method for recreating high-fidelity music with a neural network, is capable of translating music from one style, genre, and set of instruments to another.
According to the FAIR team’s white paper: “Our results present abilities that are, as far as we know, unheard of. Asked to convert one musical instrument to another, our network is on par or slightly worse than professional musicians. Many times, people find it hard to tell which is the original audio file and which is the output of the conversion that mimics a completely different instrument.”
