Sony A.I. writes a new pop song, and it’s pretty good.

I’ll admit it.  When it come to my musical prowess, I stink. I can fake it thanks to GarageBand, but now I don’t have to because,  Sony scientists have dropped a track called “Daddy’s Car” that was composed by an A.I. system called Flow Machines.

And you know what? It’s pretty good.

I know we are heading in the direction of turning more and more of our lives over to computer control.  I am not so worried about that anymore.  Yeah, we are still trying to work out the kinks and moral issues with the autonomous cars, but it doesn’t seem like such a big deal now once you listen to the soft, mellow, almost Beatles-esque song about a boy, his mother and his Daddy’s car?

Wait.  What?  Did this song just get Oedipal?  Huh.

Anyway, give the track a listen, and welcome to our new A.I. overlords!
