OpenAI is an artificial intelligence (AI) research laboratory based in San Francisco, California. They are the creators of Jukebox, a neural net that generates music in a variety of genres and artistic styles. These algorithms analyze an artist’s songs, find patterns in the audio data, and then use those patterns to generate new music and lyrics.

What does a song generated by an algorithm sound like? When inspired by the style of Frank Sinatra, it sounds like this:

It’s Christmas time, and you know what that means,
Ohh, it’s hot tub time!
As I light the tree, this year we’ll be in a tub,
Ohh, it’s hot tub time!

Rock, in the style of Elvis Presley
Pop, in the style of Katy Perry
