in the head wanting to know which one to throw the first stone. With a novelty launched by Google
on Thursday (15), you can just murmur, whistle or hum a song that the artificial intelligence
already tells you what it is.

Until then, the Google
he only understood the songs when the users sang them, with lyrics and everything. Now, the understanding is made from the melody. “Our models are trained to identify songs based on a variety of sources, including humans singing, whistling or humming, as well as studio recordings. The algorithms also eliminate all other details, such as accompaniment instruments, timbre and pitch. What we have left is the sequence based on numbers in the song, or the fingerprint “, explains the company.

THE Google
further states that artificial intelligence
works in a similar way to the human brain. “For example, if you listen to Dance Monkey by Tones and I, you will recognize the song, whether it is sung, whistled or hummed. Likewise, our machine learning models recognize the melody of the studio recorded version of the song, which we can use to combine it with a person’s humming audio “, he explains. See the tool in action:
