It shouldn’t come as a surprise that artificial intelligence would eventually make its way into the world of music, given the extent to which it has already infiltrate other aspect of our digital lives, from the creation of original artwork to the writing of essays, to conversations with therapists.

It is, therefore, not surprising that the tech giant Google is the first significant participant to enter the market.

Users will be able to enter increasingly detailed prompts mentioning genres and styles or even make songs based on a hummed or whistled tune, according to reports.

Google’s MusicLM

The company is apparently designing an AI bot that is capable of creating “original” music using both text and sound prompts. Within the company, the upcoming tool is referred to as MusicLM.

The information was provided in a research article that was published on January 26, and it described MusicLM as a “model generating high-fidelity music from text descriptions.”

Additionally, the report stated that MusicLM “produces music at 24 kHz that remains consistent over several minutes.” The paper says that songs can be made out of well-written captions like:

“The main soundtrack of an arcade game. It is fast-paced and upbeat, with a catchy electric guitar riff. The music is repetitive and easy to remember, but with unexpected sounds, like cymbal crashes or drum rolls.”

A library of sounds and other artificial intelligence prompts created from sources such as art archives are used, in combination with additional sequences of timed text prompts to assist in building the structure of songs.

There are already examples of AI-generated songs available on Google’s Github account. These examples are a part of an early release of a dataset called MusicCaps, which has 5,500 music-text pairs.

No plans to launch MusicLM any time soon

It is inevitable that the introduction of such a tool will spark additional conversations regarding the role of artificial intelligence in intellectual property theft and copyright infringement.

These conversations will be generated by a multitude of artists and art repositories who have not consented to the public use of their art in the creation of AI bots like these; in the meantime, others are capitalizing on the surge in AI-fronted technology.

Additional breakthroughs in AI bring with them a new set of dangers for the people who are responsible for creating the technology, as exploited workforces bear the burden of data mining and moderation.

The Google AI music creator is not going to be launched any time soon, according to the company, which showed ongoing concerns about cultural programming biases, errors, and concerns about plagiarism as issues that need to be overcome before the product can be made available to the public.
