AI is becoming an increasingly important tool for the modern day music business in improving music recommendation and aiding marketing campaigns. On the other hand, the role of AI in music composition is less developed, all while being potentially even more significant and more controversial. Therefore, this panel will discuss:

  • Will AI begin to put some composers and production music libraries out of a job?

  • Will we see AI start to populate Spotify’s mood playlists?

  • How do copyright laws need to adapt to keep up with the new possibilities of working with AI in music creation? Are AI generated songs based on producer’s new derivative works?
