Scientists at SONY CSL Research Lab have created the first-ever entire songs composed by Artificial Intelligence: “Daddy’s Car” and “Mister Shadow”.

The researchers have developed FlowMachines, a system that learns music styles from a huge database of songs. Exploiting unique combinations of style transfer, optimization and interaction techniques, FlowMachines composes novel songs in many styles.

“Daddy’s Car” is composed in the style of The Beatles. French composer Benoît Carré arranged and produced the songs, and wrote the lyrics.

The two songs are excerpts of albums composed by Artificial Intelligence to be released in 2017.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Research Council under the European Union’s Seventy Framework Programme (EP7/2007-2013 Grant Agreement no.291156).

The research leading to these results has been conducted by Sony Computer Science Laboratories Paris (Sony CSL Paris) and Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC), under the leadership of François Pachet.

This will make a great meme

Aaron Chapman says:

So everybody and their mom has mentioned here that the song wasn't truly composed by AI. That may be but it's still a catchy song, pleasing to my ears.

Just a fun song.

Goran Hrastovik says:

Annie Dinerman says:

I see the comment below from palceboing and it's as I expected.  The computer only wrote the music.  It's doesn't have the quality of a Beatles song, which any human will realize.

GreenSerpent says:

The ai wrote only about 2% of the song

Eniotna Yssaneb says:

Just when I say "Boy, we can't miss, you are golden" … then you do this.

Klaatu could have done it far better.

Meltstrap says:

Everyone's complaining that this sounds more like The Beach Boys rather than The Beatles, while I think It's cool.

Davitski P says:

Computers don’t have emotions. There is no music without emotion. There is no emotion in this noise. You can’t call this music. This is garbage. Just because we can get AI to do anything doesn’t mean we should.

Max Earchuk says:

shitty voice

DrManticore the Shitposter says:

and now we have vocaloids.

Liam Hwang says:

Is it only me who feels as if the vocal is like Liam Gallagher's voice?

Ken Steiger says:

My God… what is the point in trying to emulate, if not surpass human creativity? Replace all humans with robots. Render the humans completely dependent on robots. This demonic project has to be stopped at all costs.

powerbeatle says:

Sounds like a harmless song from the film La Boum (1980). FACT is: The real BEATLES are unmatched until today. THE BEATLES = creative genius Mythical creature 😉

Greenhead says:

I regret watching this while High!

chroma says:

Say, this is catchy! Record execs would have killed for a machine that spat out catchy Beatles-like songs, half a century ago. o/` "Take me to the diamond sky" o/`

The Rutles did a better job… not bad though.  Not that good either…
