First artificial intelligence Google Doodle features Bach
Updated : March 22, 2019 08:41 AM IST
Thursday's animated Google Doodle shows the composer playing an organ in celebration of his March 21, 1685, birthday under the old Julian calendar. It encourages users to compose their own two-measure melody.
Google says the Doodle uses machine learning to "harmonize the custom melody into Bach's signature music style." Bach's chorales were known for having four voices carrying their own melodic line.
The Doodle will prompt users who are unsure of how to interact with the animated graphic.
