Artificial intelligence websites such as ChatGPT and Google's Bard are less than a year old, but they have been asking many questions. One question is whether music and art produced AI is real music and art. Daniel Ek, the boss the music streaming site Spotify, has answered this question. He said there are many uses AI for making music that are OK. He told the BBC that Spotify has no plans to ban all music created artificial intelligence. This includes the auto-tune software that helps singers correct their pitch and can add vocal effects a singer's voice. Mr Ek said auto-tunes improves music. One use AI Mr Ek did not like was software mimicking (copying) the voice an artist.
Daniel Ek said using AI music will be debated "many, many years". He said the biggest problem is when AI copies the voice other singers. Spotify deleted one song created the AI platform Ghostwriter. The software copied the voices the singers Drake, and The Weeknd. The song was even submitted a Grammy music award, but it was rejected. Neither Drake nor The Weeknd knew the song. Mr Ek highlighted how serious the problem cloning singers' voices is. He said: "You can imagine someone uploading a song, claiming to be Madonna, even if they're not." He said it will be difficult to tell if a song is "sung" a bot or a human. He added that the future music production is going to be "tricky".
