We pride ourselves on identifying when we are talking to a chatbot instead of a human operator, but it seems that when it comes to song lyrics, many of us are not so certain which is which. Although Artificial Intelligence (AI) seems to have become the new darling of the tech world, could it outperform humans in more creative fields, like music? Secondary event ticket marketplace TickPick recently collected over than 1,000 rock, hip-hop/rap, country, and pop songs to train "AI artists." It surveyed 1,003 people using Amazon's Machanical Turk to rank creativity, emotionality, and favorability of the lyrics. It also wanted to discover how easy or difficult it was to tell the difference between famous songwriters and AI lyrics. It scraped thousands of song lyrics from genius.com to form a lyrical corpus.
