AI is now writing some pretty convincing Beatles songs

Even though The Beatles broke up in 1970, the fascination with them is never-ending. Now that we have artificial intelligence programs capable of creating music, it’s inevitable that people are going to use AI to resurrect the band.

BGR.com points us to some new postings that show the capabilities of this new tech. It’s not perfect, but I’ll say it again: This is the worst this technology will ever be.

First of all, check out this AI-produced version of John Lennon’s “Imagine” with Paul McCartney on lead vocals.

How about this: John Lennon singing “Wonderwall” by Oasis.

Finally, here’s a full-on Beatles song that never existed in a finished form. The programmer took bits of a song that was abandoned during the Get Back sessions. Had The Beatles completed the track, it might very well have sounded like this.
