While a large percentage of people can recognize when talking on a chatbot instead of a human operator, it seems that the same is not true when it comes to song lyrics, as it is not easy to understand when lyrics are human creation or artificial intelligence (AI). . Although AI technology seems to have become the new love of her world technology, the question arises as to whether this could exceed human ability in creative fields such as music.
TickPick, an online market New York-based event tickets users submit bids for Tickets, recently collected over 1.000 rock, hip-hop / rap, country and pop songs to train “AI artists”. TickPick conducted a survey of more than 1.000 people who used it Amazon Mechanical Turk to sort out the creativity and sentimentality of the lyrics. He also wanted to find out how easy or difficult it was to differentiate between lyrics by famous songwriters and lyrics created by AI technology. He collected thousands of song lyrics from genius.com to form a lyrical body, sorted them by genre and introduced them to every "AI artist". After five hours of machine training, AI technology was able to create songs that were virtually indistinguishable from human ingenuity, at least based on the results collected by respondents. Nearly two in five (39,6%) estimated that the lyrics created by AI technology are more emotional than the lyrics created by humans. Indicatively, many respondents thought that the lyrics created by AI are more emotional than those written by legends like Johnny Cash.
A variety of songs were evaluated differently. The rap song lyrics were the hardest reproduction their from artificial intelligence, because many rap songs have strange or unusual syntax. So mechanical learning took a long time to be able to interpret this style of song. Create confusing lyrics like "Hey, my accents a mask, your man won't show it, my office is your mansion, excellence I'm really not". THE Artificial Intelligence also produced some experimental samples. As for country music, the lyrics seemed easier to play than AI. Artificial intelligence produced depressing and sad lyrics, such as "I'd trade all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday," and "Well, if you're looking for a one-night stand, you've come to the right." place, I'm human after all, a human for hours ”.
About one in four (22,2%) thought the AI lyrics were by Garth Brooks. Only 12,3% of respondents were able to find the lyrics of country music created by AI. Pop music, respectively, was difficult to reproduce by artificial intelligence, although more than one in four thought that the lyrics created by AI were written by Billie Eilish. Only 13,6% estimated that the AI lyrics were written by her Lady Gaga. However, when it comes to people's favorite lyrics, the lyrics created by humans are still at the top of the list. Finally, artificial intelligence is changing the way we interact with each other operational and this research shows that it certainly has the potential to influence the music industry as well. However, AI should probably "stay away" from rap and pop music for now.
