How 'creative AI' can change the future of music for everyone

#artificialintelligence

Do you think you can tell a piece of music composed by artificial intelligence (AI) from one created by a human composer? Before you read any further, let's find out. The following audio consists of two fragments, one written by AI, the other by a human. Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on. If you didn't get it right the first time, no worries--we'll have a couple more mini-quizzes like this below.

The AI that wrote the fragment above has been programmed by Jukedeck, a UK-based startup working on machine-made music that won the competition at TechCrunch Disrupt London in 2015.

French classical music composer Camille Pepin faces entrenched sexism

The Japan Times

PARIS - Camille Pepin is a rarity. She is a woman composer. Women have conquered space, risen in the military ranks, but some professions remain resolutely and bewilderingly masculine. When Pepin turned up for her first day at the Paris Conservatoire -- as usual the only woman in a class of men -- an official told her that her name wasn't on the list. But when she insisted that she was and that he look again, he cried, "Ah, you're a woman!"


Amper is a music-composing AI for next generation music!

#artificialintelligence

I have always wanted to hear the sound of a music composition by a computer system, so a New York based startup has created an AI that has the ability to make original music demanded by listeners. Popular music composers named Drew Silverstein, Sam Estes and Michael Hobe who have previously composed for video games, movies and sitcoms are the idea generators of Amper, the AI music composer. According to Drew Silverstein who described his latest invention as "an emotive AI composer, performer, and producer" primarily designed for collaborating ideas with humans and come up with more creative compositions. Besides, users can interact with Amper through its simple, yet interactive UI, which can be handled by anyone. Even people with zero knowledge about music composition can also use it.
