Artificial Intelligence Just Created Five New Christmas Songs
Artificial intelligence may be improving by leaps and bounds, but it's no Kenny G... Yet.
Made by A.I. just had artificial intelligence create five new, instrumental Christmas songs. They accomplished this by feeding a computer 100 of the most popular Christmas songs so it could learn the melodies, themes, instrumentation, and even names.
Here are the five songs it spat out, none of which I'd say is an instant classic:
This is probably the best song of the bunch. It has an upbeat vibe that feels like "Jingle Bells" or "Frosty the Snowman".
This one has a more serious tone, sort of like "O Holy Night" or another similar song being played on chimes.
This feels like the most forgettable, and sounds more like the background music in an old Nintendo game than a Christmas song.
Here the AI literally just ripped off "Carol of the Bells". Apparently when the machines rise up, they'll be plagiarists.
This is another darker-sounding bell track, in the spirit of "Carol of the Bells", although at least it's not a direct rip-off.
