MIT’s new AI system can identify instruments within music

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has announced details of its latest use for AI – a deep-learning system capable of isolating the individual instruments used in a music video.
“The system, which is ‘self-supervised,’ doesn’t require any human annotations on what the instruments are or what they sound like,” explained MIT.
“Trained on over 60 hours of videos, the ‘PixelPlayer’ system can view a never-before-seen musical performance, identify specific instruments at pixel level, and extract the sounds that are associated with those instruments.”

Top-10 social profiles have thousands of impersonators

Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez are among the musicians with the largest followings on social networks – but also those with the greatest number of impersonators.
That’s according to the New York Times, which commissioned a company called Social Imposter to research the number of people pretending to be one of the top 10 accounts on Instagram. The answer? Nearly 9,000 across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
That included 1,389 fraudulent Selena Gomezes, 714 pretend Beyoncés and 233 fake-it-off Taylor Swifts, although Brazilian footballer Neymar Jr beat them all with 1,676 impersonators.

Drake ‘Scorpion’ album does more than 1bn first-week streams

This is where we’re at in the evolution of music-streaming: a single album has been streamed more than 1bn times in its first week after release.
That album, of course, is Drake’s ‘Scorpion’, with label Republic Records having confirmed the figure to The Verge, as well as the artist himself having posted about it. “New era. New platinum. Thank you a billion times over (a billion plus),” wrote Drake on Instagram.
These are global figures, but it has also become clear how large a role the US played in the first-week success of his new album: according to Billboard, ‘Scorpion’ did 745.9m streams in the US last week – nearly three quarters of the total.
