Weekly update: first-of-its-kind digitalised music library app developed with AI

Artificial intelligence

Specialists in artificial intelligence working with musicologists for the Berlin based start-up Enote have developed a first of its kind digitalised music library app. Rather than simply a pdf-scan this company has digitised hundreds of thousands of scores within the last few years. The app will allow musicians the possibility of interacting with the scores to transpose, turn pages and change the size.
