Human or AI

 In Highlights, Music

This weekend I trained an AWD-LSTM on music by many different composers from Classical Archives.  Here are some generations paired with some random selections from the human composers.  Following the great internet tradition, I’ve made a quiz (without the ads, but you can still share on Facebook or Twitter at the end if you like!)

For each pair, select the piece that was composed by a human.

    Wow, that very interesting. Having some musical education and experience, you still had to ‘Go with your gut feeling’. Very hard to tell the difference in such complex pieces of music. I got 3 of 4 correct. Keep up the great work!

      Thanks, glad you found it interesting! I see only the running totals of how many people get each score (and I obviously haven’t set this up as an actual scientific test), but it’s been fun to watch. So far I see an approximately equal number of 1’s, 2’s, and 3’s out of 4. No one has scored a 0, but I’ve only seen 2 people get 4’s (one of them I know personally & he’s a professional classical musician).
