Daddy’s Car” is the name of the first AI- generated music by the Sony Computer Science Laboratory in Paris. Yes, the first song generated by Artificial Intelligence.

Believe it or not, but it is True!

The Music Team of Sony Computer Science Laboratory Paris was established in 1997 by François Pachet. This amazing team of Sony is associated with two main areas of music: the various features of interaction in music, and the challenges of tough music description. The intense research that is put into this since its creation has led to new modes of access to music, interaction with sound, and human interaction.

The Flow Machines software is designed to get its knowledge of music from a huge database of sheet music which has varied styles of songs and then writes that track after the style prompt given by a human composer. AI (Artificial intelligence) composes the melody and harmony and later a human musician- produces, mixes, and writes lyrics for the track.

The music researchers at Sony have been researching and working on AI-generated music from years and they have previously used AI to create extraordinary jazz tracks. And now for the very first time the Sony Research Laboratory has come up with pop music generated by AI, and the results are majestic.

The first song, Daddy’s Car is very catchy and its tune is a kind of memoir of “The Beatles.” French composer Benoît Carré was the human musician for the song.

Its second song, “Mr Shadow” was created in the style of Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin and Cole Porter, the American musicians.

That’s just the beginning, this generation of music through Artificial Intelligence has a long way to go. In 2017, Sony is gearing up to release a full album through AI.

Software major Microsoft has decided to train and certify 15,000 workers on Artificial Intelligence (AI) skills by 2022, in partnership with education provider General Assembly (GA).

“According to the World Economic Forum, up to 133 million new roles could be created by 2022 and to address this challenge, Microsoft and GA will power 2,000 job transitions for workers into AI and ML roles in year one and will train an additional 13,000 workers with AI-related skills across sectors in the next three years,” the company wrote in a blog-post on Friday.

The training will revolve around technologies including data science, Machine Learning (ML), Cloud and data engineering among others.

In order to create consistent standards for AI skills, Microsoft will be the founding member of GA’s AI Standards Board which will later be joined by other industry-leading companies at the forefront of AI disruption.

“Over the next six months, the Standards Board will define skills standards, develop assessments, design a career framework, and build an industry-recognized credential for AI skills,” the post said.

To ensure that businesses can meet ever-growing AI talent needs, GA and Microsoft will establish an AI Talent Network to source candidates for hire and project-based work. GA will leverage its existing network of 22 campuses and the broader Adecco ecosystem to create a repeatable talent pipeline for the AI Talent Network.
