Spotify will not ban all AI-powered music, says boss of streaming giant

The boss of Spotify has said he would not completely ban content generated by artificial intelligence from the music streaming service.

Daniel Ek told the BBC he thought there were legitimate use cases for the technology in music, but that it should not be used to impersonate real artists without their consent.

He said there were three “buckets” of AI use in music: tools such as auto-tune, which he said was acceptable; software which impersonated artists, which was not; and a more controversial middle ground where AI-generated music was inspired by a specific artist but did not directly mimic them.
