Grimes' AI-generated royalty split
There’s never a dull moment in AI-land, and this week Grimes embraces AI-generated music and offers to split royalties with creators.
While AI is promising in making corporate and personal workloads more productive, we ask the question: can we actually rely on bots to educate the next generation?
As robot masters, we want to be smart about when to employ robots, as well as when not to. Being selective is wise and thinking critically is essential in staying ahead.

1. The Future of Music: Grimes Paves the Way for AI-Human Collaboration
Announcing a 50/50 royalty split on any successful AI-generated song, Grimes is the first big artist to own the fruits that AI has to bear. If you can’t beat them, join them, right?
Her announcement about Elf Tech – which allows artists to register music and pay out artists whose voices are used for AI-generated tracks – follows the release of a Drake song, as well as a Drake and The Weeknd collaboration.
AI + Smart Contracts: here we go.
Artists sanctioning the use of their voices in AI-generated music might be a win-win, as artists collect passive income on music that they didn’t produce. Creators tuned into AI like @thekingzletter predicted this last week. In last week’s newsletter, we talked about the blurred lines of human-generated and AI-generated content.
Grimes, who was once married to Elon Musk, is perhaps the most unsurprising proponent of AI/human collaboration in producing music. It fits her ethos and is on brand. What about underground indie artists who pride themselves on authenticity?
Artist approved AI-generated music will probably make it increasingly difficult for new artists to penetrate the mainstream market, particularly at the point that beloved voices like Drake’s and The Weeknd’s are favored by users and algorithms. Will new artists fall behind? Figure that there are AI-generated Drake songs produced once a week. Drake historically dominates the world charts when he drops new music.
2. From Screen Time to Story Time: Bill Gates' Plan to Boost Kids' Reading Skills
AI Productivity Embraced and Proven for “lower skilled workers,” but what about kids?
MIT and Stanford’s study showed that AI tools increased productivity by 14%. Considered to be the first real-world application of AI in the workplace, researchers measured the performance of 5,000 customer support workers.
Findings indicate that “novice and low-skilled workers” benefited most from AI tools, allowing them to complete work 35% faster.
“Experienced or highly skilled workers” didn’t benefit from the tools in the same way. Lindsey Raymond, Ph.D at MIT explains that AI is productive in training lower-skilled entry level workers whose learning is accelerated by AI.
Erik Brynjolfsson, director of Digital Economy Lab at Stanford Institute for Human-Centered AI, says “there’s no guarantee we’ll all benefit, but it certainly sets the table for us being better off.” EY explicitly listed AI as a hiring priority.
As we know, young workers can stay ahead by learning to utilize AI and incorporate it into workloads to increase productivity.
Generative AI is hot in the workplace, but what about school?
Additionally in the US, there is a major literary issue, attributable to both the pandemic and increased screen time.
📖 What Bill Gates fails to recognize is how literacy is traced back to a child’s home life. Parents who are available to their children and read nightly before bed equip their children to behave positively, develop a robust vocabulary, and have a natural connection to reading.
👶This is an area where human interaction triumphs robot abilities. Robots might be well and dandy training call centers and large corporate teams, but we shouldn’t be so sure to trust them to raise a generation.
Looka is an AI-powered platform that lets you design a logo and build a brand. In under 5 minutes you can generate a logo and brand kit that fits your business.
The tool is especially useful for those who aren’t design inclined. Looka is a game changer if you want to launch a minimum viable product, or even use the easy-to-design assets for the long haul.
