Like it or not, AI is becoming slowly but surely a great part of our lives, changing tremendously the way humans live, work, communicate, learn, commute and so on. While many people, including Elon Musk, are skeptical about the good outcomes of this galloping growth, many people, including Mark Zuckerberg, believe that AI possesses no harm to humans.
Either way, large companies and starting businesses continue to prioritize AI projects, and scientists and engineers tirelessly work on AI development. Even entertainers don’t shy away from the innovation that technology present, like the famous YouTube star Taryn Southern, who is collaborating with an unusual partner for her new music album “I am AI”.
While we have seen different examples of music fragments and instrumentals created by an AI, we have never witnessed anything like Southern’s project. In “I am AI”, Southern, who has over 450 thousand subscribers to her YouTube channel, writes the lyrics and the melodies of the songs, but the instrumental backings for all songs in the album are created by the AI app called Amper.
Amper is one of the most popular artificial intelligence apps out there that has the functionality of a composer, performer, and producer and allows the users to instantly create and customize original music for their content.
This collaboration promises interesting results, starting with the first track of the album, which is called “Break Free”. The song is available now and you can hear it in the video below. We promise you, you will be surprised how “normal” it sounds!
If you have interesting AI project and look for an international stage to showcase it on, The Pitcher 2018 is the right place to present it! Learn more about the event and the application process here.
