AI Music, Jukedeck, Flow Machines, Amper Music, Aiva. This is just a handful of organisations/applications that are making waves in the field of music creation with artificial intelligence.

The general idea is that with the power of algorithms one can teach a computer what sounds good and feed it enough information to recreate its own pieces. Funnily enough this can be traced back to 1960 and R.Kh.Zaripov's 'Ural-1' computer.

These days things have advanced slightly and deep learning, reinforcement learning and neural networks have been applied (to name a few) to the automation of new music.

As the applications develop, these advances could well end up with us all soon becoming budding producers at the click of a button.

Music to your ears? It surely can't be any worse than that which we've endured before... Happy Friday everyone!
