Founded in 2016 by Pierre Barreau, Denis Shtefan, Arnaud Decker, and Vincent Barreau, Aiva Technologies is one of the leading startups in this field and their music composing AI, called Aiva (Artificial Intelligence Virtual Artist), has been officially recognised by SACEM, France and Luxembourg authors’ right society, as a composer.
This means it can now release music under its own name, and Aiva is the first AI ever to be given this status. It marks an important milestone in the progression of AI in areas deemed too emotionally driven for algorithms to comprehend.a
Aiva compositions are on SoundCloud. Incredible.
