Major changes have been revealed by The Recording Academy for the biggest award show in music. The Grammys will now accept entries for music created by artificial intelligence.
However, there is a catch. According to the New York Post, AI-generated music must also include meaningful and relevant human elements. Only human creators are qualified to be nominated for or awarded a Grammy Award, according to the most recent regulations.
According to the guidelines, AI-based content without human authorship is not eligible for the competition, while AI-based content with human authorship is. The latest adjustments coincide with an increase in deep-fake tracks and AI-generated music. This year, David Guetta surprised his audience by performing an Eminem song, even though the latter had never recorded it.
Recently, Universal Music Group has removed a song with AI-generated vocals from streaming sites that falsely claimed to be from Drake and the Weeknd after it went viral. The song, Heart on My Sleeve, was denounced by the record company for “infringing content created with generative AI“.
Spotify, the biggest player in the audio streaming industry, recently removed tens of thousands of songs, or roughly 7% of the recordings that the platform Boomy had uploaded. According to an individual familiar with the incident, the major record label Universal Music had alerted all of the major streaming services of unusual streaming activity on Boomy recordings.
