Google is gaga about artificial intelligence.  So much so that their search engine is powered by it.  More importantly, Google has been experimenting with AI to see if machines can make art.  It all started when the world's most popular search engine tried to teach a machine to understand images.  An early version of Google's RankBrain AI was tasked with trying to make sense of the images it encountered.  Hoping to find a workaround for one of the search engine’s biggest lapses, which makes search engine spiders blind to images and videos, the attempt resulted in hilarity when Google’s creation began to morph images as it tried to make sense of queries posed about them, becoming a kind of PC Picasso.  Instead of throwing in the towel, Google's research team became enthralled with the idea of machine artistry.  Their latest  development, named Project Magenta, is attempting to teach a machine to play the piano.
