Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been one of the most talked about topics in the past few years, as its applications have exploded to encompass a wide range of creative fields. From image and text generators to the surprisingly fruitful application of AI to the world of music, the future for AI looks brighter than ever before.
The emergence of AI in creative fields has been largely driven by the development of generative models. Such models attempt to replicate the creative processes involved in the creation of the arts, whether that’s writing, painting, playing music or any other field. This has enabled powerful AI applications to be built which can generate visuals, text and music based on user inputs and/or existing databases of content.
The most impressive applications of these generative models in art and music have come from the development of text and image generators. By building models which look at large datasets of text, images and videos, AI applications can now generate extremely realistic and high-quality visuals which have already been applied to many areas, such as online advertising and branding. Similarly, AI-generated text is becoming increasingly common and is being used by writers and editors to generate longer, complex works of fiction.
However, AI is also making an impact in the world of music too. AI-based composers are now able to create realistic-sounding songs using generative models and machine learning algorithms. This technology has great potential to be used in the creation of custom music for films and advertisements, or even much wider applications.
Though the applications of AI to creative fields are still in their infancy, the progress made in the past few years shows the true potential that this technology has to offer. Coupled with AI’s ability to create new, original works of art and music, this could have real implications for the entire creative industry in the near future.
