New AI technology allows you to separate musical instruments in videos

If you’re in a band trying to learn a cover, you’ll know the torture of listening to a recording over and over again, trying to isolate the parts you’re supposed to play.

This video shows how it works.

Cool, no? Read more about the technology at New Atlas.
