An AI can recognize musical genres better than humans

Can you tell the difference between big band and boogie woogie? An algorithm can. Product design and development firm Cambridge Consultants says it’s created a machine learning AI that can identify different musical styles better than humans. It’s basically Jack Black in High Fidelity without the douchey elitism.

Researchers tested the AI by having a pianist play a variety of music — baroque, classical, ragtime and jazz — in a live demonstration. The AI then assessed the likely genre in real time, vastly outperforming conventional software hand-coded by humans.

A New Perspective on Materialism

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and KEMET

When choosing capacitors or other passive components, it’s easy to get bogged down in the datasheets. But, how often do you think about the properties of the materials these components are made from? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Patrik Kalbermatten of KEMET take a fascinating look at material classification, the role of ferrite in systems, and the development of metal composite piezo ceramic powders to give us sustainable sources for our component materials.
