Flow Machines – check out these AI created songs

We all know that robots are taking our jobs but creative jobs are safe, right? Well, no, they’re taking ALL the jobs. Including musician. Flow Machines is a project that is building AI systems to create music.

Ok, ok, I’m being dramatic. This AI will not be replacing your favorite musician anytime soon. This system creates music in different styles based on information fed to the program. It works with human artists, or at least their catalogues, to create new music. And it’s, well, it’s something.

Like most things made by computers, it’s a little weird. The Bach based music was more standard, the Beatles inspired jam was like something they wrote while deeply intoxicated. Either way, it’s a neat project to give a listen to. And if we teach the machines about art and music they might not kill us all when they rise up.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.

    This one sounds a lot more like late Beach Boys than Beatles, jus’ sayin’.
