OpenAI’s Jukebox Now Synthesizing Complete Songs In The Style Of Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Katy Perry #MusicMonday
It turns out if you feed pop music into an AI, what comes out sounds like Top 40 by way of a David Lynch dreamscape. More from Synthopia:
San Francisco research lab OpenAI has introduced Jukebox, a neural net that synthesizes music in a variety of artists’ styles, including rudimentary singing.They’ve trained the AI with a wide range of artists’ music, including Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Katy Perry and others. The AI directly synthesizes audio, with instruments and faux-vocals.
