On a recent spring afternoon in the Flow Machines laboratory, located on a quiet street in the Fifth Arrondissement of Paris, senior researcher Pierre Roy was more concerned with his music-making AI software’s ability to create a convincingly catchy song.
“So far, from the technical standpoint, no one knows how to do a proper song, to tell a story,” he said. “It’s a hot topic in AI.”
