HomeTechnologySpotify doesn't intend to ban AI-generated music

Spotify boss Daniel Ek recently said in an interview with BBC News that the company will not ban content created using AI. Earlier this year, Spotify removed a song featuring AI-clone voices from artists Drake and The Weeknd.

According to one the technology had legitimate uses in creating music – but AI should not be used to impersonate human artists without their consent. He believes the debate over AI will continue for “many, many years”.

He elaborated on his stance and said that there were three “buckets” in the use of AI, tools to improve music, tools to mimic artists, and tools that were inspired by artists but did not impersonate them. He believed that tools to improve music were acceptable but tools to copy artists were not.

He talked about the challenges facing the music industry, saying, “It’s going to be difficult.”

Artists are increasingly at risk from AI. Just last month, Irish musician Hozier said he would consider the threat of AI to his profession.

Mr Eck said, “You can imagine someone uploading a song claiming to be Madonna, even if she’s not Madonna. We’ve seen a lot at this point in Spotify’s history of people hacking our system.” Trying to spoil it.” “We have a very large team working on these types of issues.”
