AWS DeepComposer announces the launch of Chartbusters, a monthly challenge for developers to showcase their machine learning skills

Today, we are excited to announce the launch of AWS DeepComposer Chartbusters, a monthly challenge where developers use AWS DeepComposer to create original compositions and compete to top the charts and win prizes. AWS DeepComposer gives developers a creative way to get started with machine learning and generative AI techniques. The first AWS DeepComposer Chartbuster challenge titled “Bach to the Future” launches today and ends on July 16th, 2020. To participate in the challenge, developers will first need to use the autoregressive CNN algorithm, a new generative AI algorithm available in the AWS DeepComposer console to create compositions in the style of Bach. Next, they will need to submit the compositions to SoundCloud using AWS DeepComposer to be added to a custom playlist. AWS will announce the top 10 ranked compositions from the “Bach to the Future” challenge on July 21st, 2020 in an AWS ML blog post.
