Can artificial intelligence help compose a song that is just as successful as last year’s hit by Duncan Laurence? In the AI Song Contest teams from all over Europe and Australia compete attempting to create the next Eurovision hit with the help of artificial intelligence. Can computers blow us away with their creative power?
In the AI Song Contest, teams of musicians, artists, scientists and programmers explore the creative power of artificial intelligence (AI) and the influence AI will have on the music industry in the future. A total of 13 teams from Australia, Sweden, Belgium, The UK, France, Germany, Switzerland and The Netherlands competed in the first edition.
Between 10 April and 10 May 2020 you can listen and vote for all songs on this website. Which song earns your douze points? Note: it is no longer possible to vote.
A panel of AI experts will evaluate the songs on AI level. The panel consists of Vincent Koops (NL), Senior Data Scientist at RTL and composer, Anna Huang (US), leading AI researcher in music generation, and Ed Newton-Rex (UK), Composer and Director at the AI lab at ByteDance.
The winner is announced on 12 May 2020.
The AI Song Contest is an online project organised by Dutch public broadcaster VPRO in collaboration with NPO Innovation and NPO 3FM.
