YouTube is teaming up with Universal Music, a huge music company, to see how AI can make music better.
They’re starting something called the Music AI Incubator, where creative people like musicians and songwriters can play around with AI tech to make music cooler.
Some famous musicians like Anitta, ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus, and Max Richter are joining in.
YouTube’s boss is excited about how AI can make music more awesome, but they also want to make sure artists succeed. This is happening because AI-made music is causing some issues.
Spotify had to take down tons of songs made by an AI because Universal Music didn’t like it. Other music services like Apple Music and Amazon Music also got in trouble for using AI music without giving credit or money to real artists.
YouTube and Universal Music are trying to do AI music the right way. But there are other big music companies like Sony and Warner, and they have their own AI plans.
So, it’s a big, messy puzzle, and no one knows exactly how it’ll turn out. But it’s exciting because it could change how we enjoy music in the future!
