Artificial Intelligence: An AI Bot Can Judge Your Taste In Music (It’s Free)

December 24, 2020 | Artificial Intelligence, News

The AI will need permission to check out your Spotify.

The Pudding, a digital publication, has created a free service to evaluate the kind of music you hear. Dubbed “How Bad Is Your Spotify,” it explains: “Our sophisticated A.I. judges your awful taste in music.”

The service uses artificial intelligence to power a bot that scans your playlists and listening history. It then delivers judgment on your musical sophistication (or not). Be prepared to get an earful, however, and comments could be something like these:

  • “You’ve been listening to a lot of Taylor Swift lately. u ok?”
  • “oh great another Ariana Grande stan…”
  • “You’re stuck in the early 2010s. For you, music’s been all downhill since [South Korean rapper] RM made [the song] moonchild”
  • Your spotify was adult-skateboarder-eyeliner-and-screaming-basic-showtunes bad
  • Your spotify was 14-year-old-who-just-discovered-punk-comedy-dweeb-punk-with-grandchildren bad

Etc. Etc (International Business Times)

How are you qualified to judge my music, you may ask

This is part of an automated conversation the bot will have with you before you unleash it on your Spotify.

It will answer:

“I’ve been trained on a corpus of over two million indicators of objectively good music, including Pitchfork reviews, record store recommendations, and subreddits you’ve never heard of.”

Fortunately, the bot is not allowed to post or change anything on the user’s Spotify (NYSE: SPOT) account.
