Artificial Intelligence Music Companies Get Sued



Article: Training AI music models is about to get very expensive - MIT Technology Review

Artificial Intelligence Music could be taking a hit as Suno and Udio, two leading AI music startups that make tools to generate complete songs from a prompt in seconds, were sued by major record labels.

Article: Google’s carbon emissions surge nearly 50% due to AI energy demand - CNBC

Artificial Intelligence takes A LOT of energy and Google's emissions have gone up 50% since 2019, primarily driven by AI. So, no matter what Google's pledges are to reduce emissions, it is all being undone by its massive use of AI.

And, even with that, it has to be considered that Google is lagging far behind smaller and much smaller companies when it comes to advances in AI.
