A.I. Will Soon Tell Us What Music We Should Like
We all have our favorite type of music we listen to, but what if something could tell us what we should like? We all think we have the best taste in music, but what if the music we’re listening to isn’t really the music we should be listening to?
What do I mean? Well Researchers at California Universities say that their newest A.I. will and can predict whether a song will be an instant HIT or not. And they’re saying it’s about 97% accurate!
People were asked what kind of music they like. Then their brains were scanned while they were listening to playlists. The A.I. could see what the people responded to, when listening to the playlists. They’re also saying shows like “American Idol” could be up-ended because of this, because it would be a better judge than the ones they hire to spot the talented artists. All of this is part of something called “neuroforecasting.”
And if you think this is gonna stop at music, think again! They’re saying it could also be tweaked to predict which movies and TV shows will be a hit with viewers. Is this scary? Absolutely! Something that isn’t human, telling us what we should like! There goes personality out the window!
