Amadeus Code Receives $1.8 Million in Series A Funding

According to a new study set to go live tomorrow, music fans and consumers can’t distinguish between music created by artificial intelligence and music created by humans.

Testing panelists with music composed by AI versus stock music across 10 ‘diverse’ videos, panelists couldn’t tell any discernable difference.  Both firms, which conducted the study, claimed over a fourth respondents also said they would have a more “positive brand perception” if they knew the music in an ad was composed by AI.  This, alleged the firms, signals the future music-making and content creation.

Preparing for that new ‘future,’ Amadeus Code has confirmed a new funding milestone.

The artificial intelligence music creation platform has received $1.8 million to support the development its music generation stware.  VC firm World Innovation Lab (WiL) led the Series A fundraising round.
