5h Do androids dream of electric beats? How AI is changing music for good
The Guardian
Breakthroughs in artificial intelligence make music composition easier than ever – because a machine is doing half the work. Could computers soon go it alone? The first testing sessions for SampleRNN – an artificially intelligent software developed by computer scientist duo CJ Carr and Zach Zukowski, AKA Dadabots – sounded more like a screamo gig than a machine-learning experiment. Carr and Zukowski hoped their program could generate full-length black metal and math rock albums by feeding it small chunks of sound. The first trial consisted of encoding and entering in a few Nirvana a cappellas. “When it produced its first output,” Carr tells me over email, “I was expecting to hear silence or noise because of an error we made, or else some semblance of singing. But no. The first thing it did was scream about Jesus. We looked at each other like, ‘What the fuck?’” But while the platform could convert Cobain’s grizzled pining into bizarre testimonies to the goodness of the Lord, it couldn’t keep a steady rhythm, much less create a coherent song. Artificial intelligence is already used in music by streaming services such as Spotify, which scan what we listen to so they can better recommend what we might enjoy next. But AI is increasingly being asked to compose music itself – and this is the problem confronting many more computer scientists besides Dadabots.

The Guardian
These seven stacks of lurid rocks are the latest must-see attraction in Vegas, delighting 16 million visitors. Can their maker work the same magic in Liverpool? A couple of years ago, seven stacks of multicoloured boulders appeared in the Nevada desert. Drivers passing by on Interstate 15 must have wondered what exactly these 10-metre towers were. Teetering piles of gambling chips won by giants in nearby Las Vegas? Cairns erected by shamanic hikers on acid? Proof that neolithic man had pop art colours in his palette? Graffiti quickly offered other interpretations. A spray-painted “666” on one boulder suggested this was work of the devil, while some scrawled genitals associated the boulders with the rites of a fertility cult. And nobody knows what the jokers who wrote “Hella Spiders” on one boulder were on about.

33h The photographer taking the Twitter war to Trump
The Guardian
Former White House photographer Pete Souza has turned his portraits of Obama into spiky ripostes to the tweet-happy current president Inauguration Day 2017 was an emotional day. I had spent eight years visually documenting President Barack Obama’s time in office as his chief official White House photographer, and I was exhausted. I looked forward to a break, but knew I’d miss interacting with him and my White House friends. We had all grown close and would suddenly be separated that day at noon. What made the day surreal was the person Obama was handing the keys over to. It wasn’t Hillary Clinton, as we all had thought. It was a carnival barker who had ascended to the presidency by sheer bravado, bullshit and outright lies. As our helicopter lifted off, one of my White House “family members” asked me how I was doing. “I’m depressed,” I said. “I watched this guy” – pointing to Obama, seated across from us – “every week in the Situation Room, asking thoughtful questions, listening to advice, making tough decisions on important issues. But this other guy…” I said, glancing out the window to where the new president had watched us depart, “is not capable of that.”
