AI writes song lyrics at least as well as humans can

These Lyrics Do Not Exist differs from similar projects involving human faces, cats, etc., in that the AI-created results are no more uncanny than the real thing. You give it a topic, and select a mood – very sad, sad, neutral, happy, very happy – and a genre – country, metal, rock, pop, rap, EDM – and tell it to get cracking. Here is the chart-busting hit, "Boing Boing", exactly as generated by the AI: Verse 1 You came along you showed me My many seasons of different Boing, autumn, winter, boin...

This new Travis Scott track is actually completely artificial intelligence (video)

You wouldn’t be alone if you heard this and thought that Travis Scott has a new song out but he hasn’t actually been anywhere near this track. We’ve talked about artificial intelligence and music creation a bit on the blog before. We’re all seeing the leaps in capabilities that AI technology can do on the internet and making music is possibly one of the more underwhelming parts of that. Well perhaps not anymore, as this digital company have just created a pitch perfect sounding Travis S...

Watch Billie Eilish interviewed by an A.I.

Creative technologist Nicole He modified OpenAI's GPT-2 language model to generate questions for happy mutant pop star Billie Eilish and also write Eilish-esque lyrics. Vogue Magazine published Eilish's answers to the AI's wonderfully odd questions like: "Who consumed so much of your power in one go?" and "Have you ever seen the ending?" "What I really loved hearing Billie say was that human interviewers often ask the same questions over and over," He tweeted, "and she appreciated that the ...

AI upscaling makes this Lumiere Bros film look new – and you can use the same technique

A.I.! Good gawd y’all – what is it good for? Absolutely … upscaling, actually. Some of machine learning’s powers may prove to be simple but transformative. And in fact, this “enhance” feature we always imagined from sci-fi becomes real. Just watch as a pioneering Lumiere Brothers film is transformed so it seems like something shot with money from the Polish government and screened at a big arty film festival, not 1896. It’s spooky. It’s the work of Denis Shiryaev. (If you speak...

New AI can identify you by your dancing “fingerprint”

The way we dance to music is so signature to an individual that a computer can now identify us by our unique dancing "fingerprint" with over 90 percent accuracy. The AI had a harder time identifying dancers who were trying to dance to metal and jazz music. Researchers say they are interested in what the results of this study reveal about human response to music, rather than potential surveillance uses. None When music comes on, some people are toe-tappers or head-bobbers, others sway their h...

Remember ACID? It’s back – and ready to split stems for you automatically

It may seem like there’s not much left for music making software to do that it doesn’t do already. But how about magically extracting stems from audio? The first software to do that is one you might not have thought about for a while: ACID Pro. Back in 1998 when it came out, ACID – aka Acid pH1 – was ground-breaking. Drag and drop loops, make a song: more than any other single software release, this was what would change computer music making. Sure, Propellerhead had already established a few ...

Google CEO Sundar Pichai Explains to Congress Why Googling “Idiot” Shows Donald Trump
