Artificial Intelligence Programs That Write Songs

Santa Clara University, USA

Abstract: Despite decades of progress in artificial intelligence, songwriting remains in the human creative domain. Can a soulless machine help in the human quest for creative songwriting? How would an AI assist without taking away from the user’s self-expression? We will present two songwriting machines: ALYSIA, a machine-learning system that learns the relationship between melodies and lyrics, and MABLE,  which creates computer generated lyrics that tell a coherent story. Original songs created with these systems will also be shown.

Joint work with Rafael Pérez y Pérez, and Divya Singh, David Loker, Chris Cassion.


The Computer as a Creative Partner (3 hours)

(con traducción simultánea)
Miércoles 18 de octubre

Can a computer help us be the creative? Is it possible to collaborate with a computer in the same way that two human artists might collaborate on a song or poem? This workshop will open with a discussion on what it means to be creative, for both humans and computers, and then address the emerging possibility of meaningful creative collaboration between human and machine. Participants will have a chance to engage with a co-creative songwriting system, as well as design their own automated creative collaborator.
