The Beatles may have disbanded decades ago, but thanks to artificial intelligence, the group is being reanimated — sort of. Researchers at Sony are at work on an algorithm capable of generating new songs based on iconic musical styles, and their first crack at putting it in action starts with the iconic rock band. The song is called “Daddy’s Car,” which bears an eerie resemblance to the many songs that John, Paul, George, and Ringo used to play.
