Two previously unheard songs from rapper Drake have surfaced online, with one being a collaboration with The Weeknd. Universal Music Group has attempted to take down the songs, as they were created using artificial intelligence (AI). It is currently unclear whether the AI generated songs are legitimate or not.
There is a new artificial intelligence project that uses music from artists like Drake and The Weeknd to teach AI how to express emotions. Dubbed “Heart on Sleeve,” the project is designed to give AI the ability to better interact with humans by understanding their feelings and responding in an appropriate manner. The project is a collaboration between researchers at the University of Southern California, as well as a number of tech companies. The article also explains how the project works, and what it could mean for the future of AI-human interaction.
Is this the end of music as we know it?
