Amazon has come up with an entertaining but unlikely way to get developers excited about using its AI services: music. At its AWS re:Invent event in Las Vegas on Sunday night, the company unveiled a new music keyboard called DeepComposer, which developers can use to compose music in collaboration with Amazon generative AI models running in the cloud. The keyboard plugs into a PC, where the human can use a control panel to communicate and collaborate with the AI models. Amazon calls DeepComposer “the world’s first machine learning-enabled musical keyboard.” Generative AI creates art, text, music, or other content based on examples fed to it via machine-learning models.
