Artificial Intelligence is getting darn good at making music–and it’s getting better. This is kinda scary.

This video shows how Alice has gotten better over time. According to an interview with Musically.com, the people behind Alice want to become nothing less than the Max Martin of the AI music world. We are back on ‘we’re gonna make some hit pop songs over the next couple of years’ now. Later, Alice starts to improvise on its (her?) own. And not just any music, either. It can play the guitar, the bass and the piano, and each one of those AIs can listen to one another and play together.   Songs and compositions with beautiful, intricate melodies that rival those of the best songwriters. It begins with Alice mimicking the human. An Australian company called Popgun has a program they call Alice which is pretty smart. A tool: a more abstracted drum machine. Alice “listens” to something played by a human and then responds with musical phrases that go along with whatever the meatbag just played. That’s very new.
This is kinda scary. Artificial Intelligence is getting darn good at making music–and it’s getting better.
