For my Metis capstone project, I decided to make a tourist attraction recommender, but unlike normal travel and vacation planning websites, this recommender uses an image as input.

Everyone is aware of the practical applications of machine learning: predicting stock prices, classifying fraudulent activity, but can machine learning be used as a tool in the creative process? Googles new open source research project, Magenta, is proving that you don’t need to be human to be creative. Created by the Google Brain team, Magenta is a python and JavaScript library that allows you to generate art and music utilizing machine learning models. It leverages TensorFlow, an open-source software library that focuses on training and inference of deep neural networks.

Often times musicians are faced with creative writing blocks and…
