YouTube's Music AI Incubator
PLUS: China blasts AI into space
Good morning, human brains. Welcome back to your daily munch of AI news.
Here’s what’s on the menu today:
DeepMind’s new AI art project 🧠 🖼️
Google DeepMind launched ‘Visualising AI.’
YouTube launches Music AI Incubator 🐣
It’s partnered with Universal Music Group and shared its AI strategy.
China blasts AI into space ☄️
STAR.VISION launched the AI-powered WJ-1A smart-sat into space.
DeepMind’s “Visualising AI” 🧠 👀
Google DeepMind launched Visualising AI. 13 artists created visual interpretations of what AI “looks” like.
Bot, no eat brain? 🤖
Pieces n’ pixels:
1/ DeepMind’s goal is to diversify AI imagery and challenge stereotypical visuals like robots, code, etc.
2/ The art has garnered over 100 million views and 800,000 downloads.
3/ All art is free on Unsplash, Pexels, etc.
Our take: for many, the mention of AI conjures images of killer robots and matrix-like glyphs dancing across computer screens. Blockbusters like the Terminator movies certainly haven’t helped. While the potential for harm is there, so is the potential for human benefit — and the more we focus on the positive, the more we’ll see how to apply AI for good. Well done, Google.

YouTube’s Music AI Incubator 🐣
YouTube announced its Music AI Incubator — a collaboration with artists, songwriters, and producers to guide its AI music strategy.
To start the program off: an official partnership with Universal Music Group.
AI eggs and bacon:
1/ In 2023, videos for AI tools got over 1.7 billion YouTube views.
2/ YouTube announced its strategy to address AI’s impact on the music industry and partnered with UMC to create an AI framework.
3/ The program promotes protections and opportunities for music partners who use AI to create music.
4/ It plans to invest in AI for community safety to detect content issues.
Our take: The AI-generated music debate rages on. Music, music videos, and live performances have always been a huge part of YouTube’s platform. Smart move not to fight the trend and, instead, lean in.
A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA
China’s new AI-powered satellite ☄️
A Chinese satellite company, STAR.VISION, has successfully launched WonderJourney-1A into space. It’s an AI-powered satellite with real-time observation and data processing capabilities.
1/ The WJ-1A launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre located in Inner Mongolia.
2/ The String Edge AI Platform allows the satellite to process the data it gathers onboard, in real time — eliminating the need for data processing down on the ground.
3/ The name, “WonderJourney,” is inspired by Zhuangzi, the ancient philosopher who first defined the concept of the “universe.”
4/ STAR.VISION plans to use the tech to monitor the climate and support emergency relief efforts.
Our take: monitor the climate or monitor the rest of the world? With satellites, it’s potato, potahto. And companies in the private sector neeever install backdoors for the Feds. But hey, climate monitoring good.
Politick aside: there’s a notable increase in embedded AI — like the example of this satellite. Chip companies like Kneron are already tailoring their AI chips specifically for these types of applications.
