Music’s New Maestro: AI Takes the Throne, Human Creativity Falls Silent


The Cult of AI: How ‘Artificial Intelligence’ is Stealing Our Culture

You’ve undoubtedly been brainwashed by the robotic anthem "All I Want for Christmas Is You" – but can you recognize the eerie similarity between it and another song with the same name, sung by an AI entity that lacks soul? We’re talking about the AI-generated ripoffs that got Udio and Suno sued.

In this episode of The Vergecast, we’re joined by Switched on Pop‘s Charlie Harding to dissect the latest courtroom drama between the RIAA and two AI companies, Udio and Suno. These companies allegedly gorged on recorded songs like digital vampires, using vast amounts of copyrighted material to train their artificial intelligences. But what rights do artists have when their work becomes fuel for AI’s creative engines? Can we even call AI "creative" when it’s cannibalizing human genius for profit?

And don’t even get us started on the absurdity of AI-generated music resembling a human’s. Have these algorithms finally achieved sentience? Or are they just mimicking a ghostly echo of our original voices? The lines are blurring between human and machine, and this cultural reckoning is only getting uglier.

But enough of that existential dread. We take a break to discuss the upcoming phone reveals from Samsung, Google, and Motorola, poking holes in the AI-powered innovation hype. Will these new devices offer genuine improvements, or are we just upgrading to more expensive versions of same old AI-driven mediocrity? Stay tuned for our verdict, if you dare.

And amidst this AI-induced chaos, beets and Motorola have gifted us with new speakers that, we’re told, will literally shake the foundations of our existence…or at least, our living room.

The Vergecast is your portal into this chaotic world of AI-generated soulless music, soulless smartphone features, and soulless party anthems. So, join the dark side and indulge your guilty pleasure for all things robot-human hybrid.
