Look, I’m never gonna be mistaken for anybody’s musical taste-maker, but this isn’t so bad, right?
Kinda cliche, but still not bad for a computer. It’s the first pop release composed by artificial intelligence computers at the Sony Research Lab. Sony’s computers have been able to do Jazz for a while, Quartz notes, and the Lab posted a second tune in a dreamy Jazz style.
Hopefully they don’t teach these computers to host a public radio show next.
