It’s the screams of the damned!’ The eerie AI world of deepfake music

Deepfake music is set to have wide-ranging ramifications for the music industry as more companies apply algorithms to music. Google’s Magenta Project – billed as “exploring machine learning as a tool in the creative process” – has developed several open source APIs that allow composition using entirely new, machine-generated sounds, or human-AI co-creations. Numerous startups, such as Amper Music, produce custom, AI-generated music for media content, complete with global copyright. Even Spotify is dabbling; its AI research group is led by François Pachet, former head of Sony Music’s computer science lab.

Elon Musk Talks Tesla AI Chip, Autonomy Level 5, Accessing The Vector Space In Your Mind, & More

“How do we see the evolution of AI algorithms? I’m not sure how’s the best way to understand it, except what neural net seems to mostly do is take a massive amount of information from reality, primarily passive optical, and create a vector space, essentially compress a massive amount of photons into a vector space.”

He shared that earlier that very morning he was wondering, “Have you ever tried accessing the vector space in your mind? Like, we normally take reality just for granted in a kind of analog way. But you can actually access the vector space in your mind and understand what your mind is doing to take in all the world data.”

He explained that what we are actually doing is trying to remember the least amount of information possible. “So it’s taking a massive amount of information, filtering it down, and saying what is relevant. And then how do you create a vector space world that is a very tiny percentage of that original data. Based on that vector space representation, you make decisions.”

AI Is About to Drastically Change

Medlock continued, “I also spend quite a bit of time thinking about the philosophical implications of development in AI, and intelligence is something that is very, very much a human asset.” This led him to deviate from a brain-focused model and explore, allowing him to see the cell as a worthwhile comparison. “I think the place to start, actually, is with the eukaryotic cell,” he said. When a lot of people hear artificial intelligence they hear “artificial brain,” but he thinks that instead, we can view the entire human body as an “incredible machine.”
