Apocalyptic Scenario of Artificial Intelligence Destroying Humans Exaggerated
Launched as a collaborative effort between YouTube sensation Taryn Southern and Amper, an AI music composer, the release of "I AM AI" could offer a peek into collaborations to come as the music industry continues to evolve.

"Human creators and human musicians are not going away," Drew Silverstein, CEO for Amper Music, told CNN Tech. "We're making it so that you don't have to spend 10,000 hours and thousands of dollars buying equipment to share and express your ideas."

According to Southern, the process of creating the album's first song, "Break Free," was easy, with only a few minor tweaks.

"In a funny way, I have a new song-writing partner who doesn't get tired and has this endless knowledge of music making," she told CNN Tech. "But I feel like I get to own my vision; I iterate and choose what i like and don't like."

"There's a lot more control," the YouTube sensation noted.

While one concern among critics points to the issue of robots taking over everything, Silverstein explained to TechCrunch that the entire project of Amper is and will continue to be a "collaborative experience to propel the creative process forward."

And as it turns out, it did just that.

While Southern admitted she would previously get stuck in the same song-writing style, she said working with Amper allowed her grow and be more creative as an artist.

"When working with AI music, everything it spits at me is a surprise."

Created by a team of musicians and technology experts, the development of Amper was intended to create an affordable and royalty-free way to provide the music. Currently, interested musicians can test the service out for free as part of a beta roll-out, according to the Daily Mail.
