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.

Aiming to take on Google’s image recognition mobile app, Microsoft has launched a new “visual search” function for Bing which lets users click a picture of something with their mobile phone to search for it online.

“Today we’re launching new intelligent ‘Visual Search’ capabilities that build upon the visual technology already in Bing so you can search the web using your camera. Now you can search, shop and learn more about your world through the photos you take,” the Bing team wrote in a blog post late on Friday.
