Streaming services are provided by Deezer. Deezer launched various latest technologies for the detection and deletion of songs on the platform. This application is made by the utilization of AI that includes mimicking artists and popular tracks.
In an effort to “weed out illegal and fraudulent content”, Deezer has developed the latest software that has an objective to pick up ‘deep faked’ tracks.
The platform, Deezer, follows a recent surge in songs made using AI. The list of tracks was removed from streaming services that were following a petition made by Universal Music in April.
The CEO of Deezer, Jeronimo Folgueira, once said that the company needs to take a stand now. They are trying to make a pivotal moment in the music industry.
Despite their opposition to mimicking audio, Deezer’s new AI-detection technology was created by using artificial intelligence and machine learning. Folgueira said that it is the better use of AI, as opposed to using technology to mimic music.
Music as an industry needs to make sure that AI is used in the right way, that it complies with the law and intellectual property rights and those artists get compensated fairly.”
Folgueira said that ‘Deepfaked’ vocals will be tagged using Deezer’s new software. This would later be flagged with labels, artists, and rights holders.
Deezer eliminates a huge amount of artists and fake streams every day – and the trend is that this fraudulent behaviour just keeps on accelerating.
It has been detected that last month, Spotify reinstated tracks from AI generator Boomy after allegations that it was streaming fake. The AI music application guarantees to create “original songs” which were uploaded to Spotify before the streaming service blocked its content over allegations of “stream manipulation”.
The practice of regular usage of AI has been welcomed by some artists for the creation of music. Artists launched new software to mimic her voice in May and offered a 50% royalty cut to any music made using her voice.
