Spotify Takes Down Tens of Thousands of AI-Generated Songs

In a bid to maintain the quality of its music library, Spotify has reportedly removed tens of thousands of AI-generated songs from its platform. The move comes after the company identified that these songs were artificially created and did not meet the platform’s guidelines for content.

According to reports, the songs in question were created by an AI music generator called Boomy Music. The algorithm uses data inputs such as tempo, genre, and mood to generate original music tracks. However, it appears that some of the tracks generated by the system may have violated Spotify’s policy of not allowing “content that infringes on copyright or trademark laws, that violates Spotify’s terms of use, or that promotes hate, violence, or illegal activities.”

As a result, Spotify has removed tens of thousands of songs from its platform, prompting criticism from some users who enjoyed the unique and experimental music created by Boomy Music. However, Spotify has defended its decision, stating that it wants to ensure that all content on its platform meets its quality standards and is created in a legal and ethical manner.

This move by Spotify highlights the growing challenges faced by streaming services when it comes to managing content. As the use of AI in music creation becomes more prevalent, platforms will need to develop more sophisticated systems for identifying and moderating content that does not meet their standards. In the meantime, users may need to accept that some of the more experimental and innovative music created by AI may not make it onto their favorite streaming services.
