Google is celebrating composer Johann Sebastian Bach with its first artificial intelligence-powered Doodle

Thursday's animated Google Doodle shows the famed musician playing an organ in celebration of his birthday. It encourages users to compose their own two-measure melody.

Google says the Doodle uses machine learning to "harmonise the custom melody into Bach's signature music style."

The AI Doodle was created by Google's Magenta and Pair teams. Magenta is the company's research project for exploring machine learning; 

 While the Magenta team handled the machine learning aspect the pair team created a way for the machine learning to be embedded into the Google Chrome browser and for it to be accessed with ease.

 To develop the AI Doodle, Google teams created a machine-learning model that was trained on 306 of Bach's chorale harmonisations. At the same time, another dedicated team worked to allow machine learning to occur within the Google Chrome web browser rather than on the servers. 

The applications of Artificial Intelligence are infinite, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
