Australia won the first “Eurovision AI” substantial help koalas

A group called Uncanny Valley (Sinister Valley) said that their song is a resonant response to the season of forest fires that ravaged Australia in 2019.

Despite the fact that this “song Contest AI”, computers by themselves can’t compete. As usually happens with music neural networks, machine learning is used to generate some of the elements of the songs, and the people then engaged in the arrangement and performance of the final versions of the tracks. In the case of the winning song called “the Beautiful World” AI mainly used to write melodies and lyrics, and the sounds of Australian wildlife as a synthesizer.
